Fw:Ham Radios in Space



Subject: Ham Radios in Space


        Alan Bethel , KE6QIS and Jeff Davis, N9AVG and James French, KD4DLA
have provided a very
 interesting
 reference,  ( http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2000/ast21aug_1.htm?list )
 of
 Dr. Owen Garriott, W5FLF's Ham Radio activity in space.

      This article also references Ham Radio aboard the Mir Space Station.
 There have  been many school contacts with Mir as well as with SAREX and
 for those interested,  MSNBC is still running a story of contact with the
 Schnecksville School in Pennsylvania.  This story has a video clip of
 Amateur Radio SSTV
  pictures and voice exchange with the most recent Cosmonauts who wee aboard
 Mir.
  It may be viewed at:

     For further detail about Ham Radio and the addition of SSTV  aboard the
 Mir Space Station see:
