    Hi!

    I heard the start of the contact from outside my house near Phoenix AZ, using a TH-D74 HT and Elk log periodic. Just as Serena said she copied N1FD, and she started answering the first question, I was at my LOS. I went back inside, and watched the remainder of the contact on N1FD's livestream. Fun!

    73!

    I would love to talk to the lady astronaut on ISS, or listen in.

    145.800?

    What is the minimum setup to talk?

    Receive on 145.800, transmit on 144.490 - or, for some radios, a memory that has 145.800 MHz and a -1.31 MHz offset.

    Many different combinations of radios and antennas have been used to work NA1SS. I have used an HT with a telescoping whip, an HT with a handheld directional antenna, and a mobile radio with a directional antenna. Lots of options, and add a little bit of luck.

    73!
