QSO with Valery!

Hello Piero,

I heard Valery replying you this evening.
I have a recording of your QSO with RS0ISS, and if you want I can send you this file as mp3 or realaudio.

QSO with Valery!

Hello all,
I contacted Valery a few days ago and had a short chat with him. I tried to look for his personal call info on internet, so I could send him a postcard, but I couldn´t find anywhere... any ideas?
should I send with the QSL to the info for RS0ISS?
tnx for the help...

QSO with Valery!

I was just wondering what kind of equipment you all are using?

I am interested in talking to the ISS.

QSO with Valery!

As far as equipment goes, you have a couple options. You can use an HT along with a gain antenna such as an Arrow antenna. What I use is my Icom 2100H with a 5ele yagi, however at 55W a 5/8wave mobile would more than likely do the trick. I´ve gotten into several LEOs that way as well.

If you use a mobile (or even some HTs) like the 2100H it is a good idea to use the non-standard offset setting for your ISS memory channel. You would effectively be working the ISS as if it was a repeater with a 1.31mhz(-) offset! Just remember to reset the offset feature back to 600khz when you´re done so you don´t accidentally store a normal repeater with that huge, and incorrect, offset!

QSO with Valery!

Hey, my first rig was a 202!! You should be able to get to the ISS just fine with that 3ele beam. I was able to hear packet off the station with just the rubber duck that came with it. Even as low as 13 degrees of elevation. Good Luck!

I had a QSO with Valery yesterday (30th Sept.) at 20:41 UTC via our clubstation DL0VW.

Has anyone recorded that and could send me an audio file? Please email me!

I used my Kenwood TM-D700 and a 11el. Yagi. Signal was a clean and real 59!
