Newcomer

Hi,

I have some knowledge of basic radio theory and would like to try listening to ISS.

I was thinking of buying a second-hand Icom PCR1000, but would be keen to hear any comments on what would be suitable without breaking the bank please.

Also, I have been reading about "egg-beater" type antennae for use with weather satellite reception, and wondered if this would be a good idea for ISS also.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

Many thanks......Mike (Cambridge - UK)
