Schoolcontact with Gdansk Poland

During the pass over The Netherlands 31 dec. 2011 at 14.04 UTC I received this first part of the schoolcontact between ISS an The Historical Museum of Gdansk Poland.
Received with Uniden UBC3500xlt scanner and a home-made 137.5 MHz QFH antenna at 145.8000 MHz FM.

Need some advice for proper Rx

Hello everyone!

I am new to this forum. I've always tried to go outside and watch the ISS go overhead. I recently purchased an old Icom IC-PCR100 receiver and was given a AntennaCraft ST2 scanner antenna to use.

So far, I have not been very successful at listening in on ISS voice communications on 145.8mhz FM. I have been able to hear sporadic data packets on 145.825mhz.

What would be a better antenna to use? I figure this old IC-PCR100 receiver should be capable of receiving, so I can only guess that perhaps the antenna isn't good enough.

How, where and when I get to the ISS is best?

I'm brand new here and I know therefore not as 100% pure.
But maybe you can tell me how I'm best with the ISS can spark.
I have a homemade J-antenna can perform their functions under the umbrella of the antenna too much or is a screened?

Thank you for your answer!

What happened to VHF packet on 145.825?

Is the new crew going to be using VHF packet again on 145.825 or staying on UHF? My setup is primarily designed for the 2 meter work and beacons. There has not been much VHF activity heard over the Eastern US lately.
