Hi Jim!

Don't worry about stealing the thread.

You're making my point, mentioning not only the radio/antenna setup but
the circumstances you have been able to work the ISS digipeater and FM
satellites that way. I saw the same thing last month when I worked
satellites, and especially the ISS, from Los Angeles. I'll probably see it
again next month, for another presentation out there. It is nice to work
satellites (and the ISS) from different locations, to get the experience of
how the passes are away from home.

Are you near Long Beach?
