  15. hi there iav just got my foundation licence 6 months ago my call M6KWI and iav been trying to make contact with the iss.... set your scanner frq 145.800 and get the page up of the net iss tracker to see were it is i can hear them 100 mile of the uk it has a big foot print has it goes over ... i use a 2meter yaesu fm transceiver ft-1802 call out on 145.200 working splits with listen 145.800 .... try building a 2 meter anttenna or just buy one for around 30 pounds... my scanner with just the standerd antenna is not up for the job.. your receiver needs the best anttenna so get your self a vhf antenna so if you go for your exam it will come in for your new 2 meter radio lol.... this is how i deal with the iss all the best the call for the iss is PI9ISS the last few times its been over hope this will help

  18. just herd the iss not giveing the NE1ISS call but PI9ISS thay were talking to some one in germany so next time i will try 15 mins sooner putting out my call well to the next time
