9M0L on 80M 3511

Heard loud  579 real    but  needed  many many calls to get in the log after hearing  him working PE5T   1 Italian in  between and finally he responded.  I was hearing them so strong I thought to have an easy QSO after few calls.
My 80m vertical seemed to be inefficient  where is all power going.  
Also interfering the TV reception in home made it not easier.
Once I could TX full power at 80M and the Sharp LCD did not change at all.   It seems the Scart type connections are not HAM-grade. So yet again another TV SAT receiver is needed.

ISS passed over PA0 land  at 21:30  sky was mostly we went outside and saw the moving "Star" in the south passing from west to east.
Heard ISS packet signal at 145.800  but  was not ready to decode.
It was the previous Millennium that I had Baycom running  on the
packet DX-cluster and had no decoding program installed.  
So I had to install some packet decoding program like MixW   decoding packet direct from the audio card.
I installed it and could decode 1200bd at 144.8725   a dxcluster!  still running I did not know it was still on air.
I have decoded the ISS packet Beacon  before  12 years ago or so.
