Hopefully I will be able to work several of these passes this coming week. I am seeing that I am needing to invest (again) in batteries for my D7 HT so have not been able to try to operate via HT only on some of these ISS Passes when I have been out and about due to work demands. I know that last time I needed to get batteries for my D& HT I had to do a lot of searching to find a company that still made batteries. So I may go with a battery holder this time around.

Until next time…..73s!
