Ham Radios in Space



       Alan Bethel , KE6QIS and Jeff Davis, N9AVG 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 references Ham Radio also 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:
