antennas for ISS contacts

For my voice contacts, I used my Arrow Antennas handheld Yagi twice and a Maldol AH-510R long telescoping whip once standing outside my office in downtown Phoenix. For my limited ISS packet activity, done from home, I used a 2m eggbeater antenna on the roof. All of these used my Icom IC-T7H HT.

73!

2 voice contacts, both with the Arrow. Brilliant antenna.

Once using a 6-watt HT, second contact with 50 watts from an IC-706.
