We will have a bunch of passes where we have a chance of picking it up.
I learned about it with just a few minutes to put something together for a pass, jumped up and assembled my 3 element yagi, and my HT, and managed to *hear* it intermittently as it went over for the pass that started at 12:05pm. We should have passes at 1:42pm and 3:18pm, then 5 passes tomorrow, 5 passes Sunday (although some of those might fall after the end of the SSTV stuff, I haven’t checked.
Anyway pretty good fun for standing outside in the snow with low expectations and then hearing the ISS.
It occurs to me now that the elevation angle is pretty low - starting at the horizon and rising to 49 degrees above. So perhaps I’d have better luck with the GP-6 on the roof of my garage. I may try that next.
Frequency is 145.800. I suppose I ought to figure out Doppler shift but I didn’t bother for this first pass. I hope folks with advice will chime in!
73, Don’t forget to smile and have fun!
