I did finally get it in.
I'm going to plan B however, broadcasting directly to the nearby friend's location.  Already have everything needed including console. Need to do a relocate on the transmitter for a better signal but its been raining continuously now for a couple of days.  Worked in the rain yesterday setting it up. The signal at the current location into friends house is 28-32 with about 70% packet success. Not great so want to get near 40 packet strength so this winter at -30f I don't have major packet loss.
Highest signal strength is 60 near the transmitter.
 
I'm swapping antennas around since I have line of sight between ISS and LR repeater using yagi and blocked coverage into the house so will use the Omni aerial TX side.  A large semi-trailer is blocking straight line into the house my hope is omni does a better job.

Despite the rain have new station setup with telepole and broadcasting back to a friends place. I have my laptop uploading to CWOP and WU currently. Requested a location adjustment with CWOP and as usual, you can't do crap with WU.  :evil:

Not exactly what I wanted but with teamviewer I still have control.
Couple pics of the station before I got rained out again.

Just curious - how tall is the Telepole, and how stable is it?
