  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:
