Re: [amsat-bb] ISS Call sign RZ3DZR



Actually, It isn't hard to figure out why the first callsign for the
ISS is going to be Russian:
Two-thirds of the crew will be Russian
They will all be arriving in a Russian-owned Soyuz capsule, flown
from a Russian-run launch complex
The flight will mainly be controlled from Russian facilities during
launch and all other operations up to opening the hatch after
docking

So, having the first crew use a Russian callsign makes sense to me.
