 Hi All,
     Alan Boyle of MSNBC who covered several stories on the MIR Space
 Station
 has presented another outstanding story. This story covers  Commander
 Frank
 Culbertson, KD5OPQ's contact aboard the Internationa Space station (ISS)
with the  Armand  Bayou Elementry school in
 Houston.
 This presentation contains perfect audio of the children asking and
 receiving answers from Frank.  He also talked with his son and daughter
 who
 attend this school.
     The MSNBC story shows a picture of Frank at the ARISS setup for the
 Amateur Radio  Station. In the future it is planned that this type of
 picture within the ISS  or pictures outside the ISS can be sent to  all
 Amateur
 Radio Stations on Earth to see via Amateur Radio SSTV.  This SSTV  System
 is
 called SpaceCam1 and is currently in test with excellent results via AMSAT
 AO-40.  For those listening to AO-40,  SSTV picture exchanges  can be seen
 from time to time
 around the frequency of 2401.350 MHz.  Excellent pictures have been sent
 and
 received from Europe, Japan and Australia as well as within the USA.
     The MSNBC Story can be seen at:
