Trying to hear the ISS - little help to get me started

KD0TLI here....

I purchased an Arrow dual band satellite antenna, but dispite my best attempts so far I've not heard anything on either 145.800 or 437.800.

I'd like some advice on understanding when/mode the ISS is transmitting.

Thanks.

Can never get anything but static

Every time the ISS passes me (east of Hamilton, Ontario) I quickly put on 145.825 or 145.800 and I only get nothing but static.
Mind you I don't have an outdoor antenna, just the small BNC rod that came with my BCD996XT.
Does the ISS only broadcast over Europe? I know some people down in the USA can receive but what about Canada?

So how do I receive them? What hardware or equipment will I need to get?

Looking for some help hearing the ISS. Today had a great pass right over Minnesota...but heard nothing on either 145.800 or 437.800. Guess I could use a little help- I have no idea what I'm doing. Gear - HT with an Arrow VHF/UHF antenna. Please shoot me a direct email if you can offer some advice. KD0TLI@yahoo.com
