Columbus patch antennas position!!

During the last few days while I was trying UHF Packet on the international space station .I noticed several time a sudden dip in the signal strength and loss in connection with packet system. ISS elevation was reasonable and the signal strength on the VHF packet system was strong!
I’m thinking of 3 cases:
1- The patch antennas position!
(The patch antennas are fixed on the Meteorite Debris Panels (MDP) protecting the hull of Columbus. On the port cone of the module, where it attaches to the ISS )

2- Radio and power used!
3- Doppler Effect!

M6WAD contact with PI9ISS Sunday 26th February 2012

Had my first contact with the ISS and spoke to Andre, PI9ISS. The recording is only of him speaking, but although a first for me, I think Andre's said it was his first contact to The UK. Hope I get the QSL card to put as pride of place in my Shack
