New Ham Radio Antenna Installed on ISS


I want to take this opportunity to congratulate the ARISS-International 
team on the successful installation of the first of four ham radio antennas 
on ISS.  Those that watched the NASA TV video were afforded an outstanding 
view of the first ISS Ham antenna installation EVA which was performed by 
Cosmonaut Yuri Onufrienko and Carl Walz.

It was pretty exciting to see the unfurled ISS Ham antenna system 
permanently mounted on the outside edge of the service module.  The antenna 
system looked breathtaking from the videos we witnessed while supporting 
the EVA activity.

Lou McFadin, W5DID, Frank Bauer, KA3HDO, Mark Steiner, K3MS, Ken Nichols, 
KD3VK and Mark Clausen supported the ISS Ham antenna installation at the 
NASA Goddard/ISS Ham-Goddard Control Center.  Carolynn Conley, KD5JSO 
provided the antenna installation support at the NASA Johnson Space Center 
Mission Control Center.

Congratulations team on a job well done.  We have taken our ideas, concepts 
and vision and transformed them into reality.
