MARCH 14 ARISS CONTACT A SUCCESS!

by admin 0 Comments

Despite having to be at the school early in the morning after working late the night before on last minute preparation, the team pulled off a nearly perfect contact with the International Space Station. With strong signals until just before our anticipated loss of signal time at the horizon, all 22 students who had prepared questions for Commander Koichi Wakata were able to ask their questions and hear the answers. Even Dr. Catherine Neuhoff, the principal of MMSTC, got to ask an impromptu question before the assembled crowd gave a big cheer and we signed off with NA1SS.

You can see a video of the contact as well as the report by TV Warren News on the Macomb Mathematics Science Technology Center website.

Ham radio: It’s not just for old guys anymore

This video from YouTube shows 9 year old Yoshiki, KH0UA, operating in the 2009 All Asian DX Phone Contest from Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands. Yoshiki is licensed in Japan as JF1UCV and contests from Saipan with his dad Kuniyoshi, 7J1FPU/W1FPU. The exchange for the contest is RS + age. Note that his second contact is with a 10 year old Japanese girl Eri, JF1VGZ/1 and they exchange 59 09 and 59 10.
