Attempting to receive LoRa signals from new cubesats using Elk antenna pointed to the East. Received packets from Norby while it was over Marfa, Texas – 900+ miles away. Typically can only receive Norby packets with a quadhelix antenna while the cubesat is closet over western Arizona.

Since writing this post, I switched to a roof mounted omnidirectional quadflex antenna that gets much better results as shown in the map below. Station location is colored red.
