ARISS school contact



http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/london/7636229.stm


Disappointing to note that the BBC's on line news report of the ISS school contact today with a school in England noted that the contact took place via "satellite phone" doh! 

Bearing in mind there were three or four TV crews there, it is surprising that they were not given a handout with the facts or that the organisers failed to brief the media properly!

A bit of a waste of good publicity for ARISS and the amateur radio service methinks!
