Within the weekend starting Fri Sep 25th me and my sons were trying to listen and make a QSO via the ISS repeater. There wasn’t any succes with QSO due to the pure antenna equipment which was only the mag-mount NR-770RSP on a piece of metal inclined at an angle of 45 °. The TRX was my old Kenwood TM-V7E powered by Banner 12V 74Ah accu.
We could very well listen to the QSO between G1MHU (UK, close to Manchester) and IK8XLD (Italy, half way from Bari to Napoli), distance between those stations was ca 1.900 km.
