International Space Station NA1ISS contact with GB4YOTA

On Tuesday 8th August, there was a planned contact between the ISS and YOTA at 1837 UTC, so I decided to have a listen. There was an issue with the ISS VHF downlink during this pass, so the contact was rescheduled to the next pass, at 2015 UTC. You can hear Paolo IZØJPA apologise for the technical issues they had on the first pass at the beginning of the contact.

I was lucky enough to be able to hear both GB4YOTA and NA1ISS from my location, as the YOTA station was operating from Gilwell Park, which is only 18km NW from my location. The video below shows my reception of the contact. Antenna was a Diamond X-50 on the house, into an Icom IC-7100.
