Sorry, but I'm still pretty new to all of this, but I really am doing my best to study everything that I can get a hold on about the ISS and how to do an Official Contact with them.
I've read the ARISS website, and I've gotten in touch with my country's ARISS/NASA representative (I live in Canada). So I have a good idea on how to follow the contact procedures/requirements.
Alright, so I'm on a really tight budget and I've only been able to buy the following equipment:
HyGain VB216-sat antenna, Yaesu G5500 rotor, nova and orbitron software for tracking, 250ft. of control cable, and my own homemade base stand. (these are all for my primary station).
