Ham Radios in Space



Nice write up at Science@NASA today:

For most amateur radio operators, it is the thrill of a lifetime to receive a "CQ",
or general call, from an astronaut in space. But for some, like former astronaut Dr. 
Owen K. Garriott, call sign W5LFL, the thrill comes from receiving a response from
"hams" down on Earth.
