S9 the entire pass just now on my Oscar-ish array, without the preamp. 
2m antenna is a 2x8 element circular polarized beam, and about 60' of
old RG-something-thick (either 8 or 214) to the rig.  Full Az/El
rotisserie.  2 great images (4/12 and 5/12), though I had to switch
polarization about halfway through the first one.  Odd, since I thought
the ISS antennas were linear...
