Ham radio ISS contact in UK press
|The UK newspaper the Daily Mail featured an article about the amateur radio contact between Canadian students and ISS astronaut Chris Cassidy, KF5KDR|
The newspaper reports:
A group of Canadian students used ham radio technology to have a once-in-a-lifetime conversation with a crew member aboard the International Space Station
Young members of the Airdrie Space Science Club in Alberta connected with NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy [KF5KDR], who was conducting experiments aboard the ISS some 240 miles above Earth's surface.
Brian Jackson [VE6JBJ], a teacher at CW Perry Middle School, started the club to inspire children to learn more about astronomy.
Launched in 2000, the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) program connects students like his with space station crew via amateur radio communications.
Since the program debuted, it's connected more than 250,000 students in 57 countries to astronauts on the ISS.
