Hey Jack.

I was able to get digipeated on the 1828 UTC pass today, but at times over
the past week or so, it's not seemed to be as strong on RX or TX.

Of course the digipeater was off when they had the space walk the other

I've turned the speaker volume up on some passes recently listening for any
sign of QIKCOM-1... it's totally subjective but the signal from the ISS
hasn't sounded as strong as I've heard in the past.  I have also noticed
that I can forget about a digipeat after it has passed my location.
Perhaps the antenna location on the ISS is blocked from certain angles?
