Re: LIVE! - ESA Ariane: Jules Verne ATV Launch

Hi all,
Glad to see the success of the launch and the first phase of this project.  - 
Trust that all goes well over the next few weeks with the trail and docking  
testing and evaluation.
Thought that you might like to know that " Amateur Radio" did have a role  to 
play during the marketing and 
a public exhibition about the project.
With my colleagues from the "Barry Amateur  Radio Society " together  with 
ESA and the city of Cardiff in South Wales -UK .    We put on a special event 
station a couple of years ago under the  title " The World of 
It included a scale model of the "Space Tug" shipped over from ESA and a  
visit of the key European Astronaut involved in the project.
Thought you might like to know,  anyone that made contact with our  event 
will have pleasure in knowing the QSL card is now part of history.
