I also wonder why it would perform remarkably worse than my 17” Diamond HT antenna. Apparently the Diamond is pretty hot!

I do realize more gain would be nice. I have a Yagi at home that needs finishing. I guess I should have brought it to work and completed it.
However, hearing the ISS near the beginning and near the end of the pass and not in the middle seems abby-normal. Both times the ISS was under 20 degrees. Normal at its maximum elevation.
My 6PM pass will have a max elevation of ~89 degrees so I do expect a null at the top from the ¼ wave antenna.

Some gaIn in the antenna will help. A tape measure beam will provide plenty!
