There was an Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) school contact planned with participants at Primarschule Aesch, Forch, Switzerland around 13:50 UTC.
Ideally I would have been at home at that time during my lunch hour and would have brought out the big guns to make a decent recording as I've done in the past. Instead yesterday saw me spending most of the day at The Royal Derby Hospital.
But I planned ahead and took along my trusty Realistic PRO-26 to see what I could receive in the car park if I got the chance, which I did!
I actually received a few minutes more but I hadn't packed a spare battery for the camera and it ran out.. doh!
I was using a Watson W-881 Super Gainer but it's length precludes being able to stand it up.. hence the horizontal polarisation!
