ARISSat-1 BPSK decoding vs. Azimuth/Elevation

Below you can see a very interesting plot. It shows an successful decoded BPSK packet and the direction of the antenna at this moment.

Due to the inclination of ARISSat-1 all my passes are from WEST to EAST. I’ll never have a northbound/southbound pass. You can see this very good in the graph. A second point is the gap between 200 deg and 260 deg for low elevations. This shading is based on houses in the neighborhood.
From east to south-west I have a clear view to the horizon.
