ARISS Congratulates KE5AIT

ARISS Congratulates KE5AIT

The ARISS Team would like to congratulate astronaut Lt. Col. Mike Fincke on earning his Technician license, KE5AIT.  Once he was
selected to replace William McArthur Jr, KC5ACR, on the International Space Station’s Expedition 9, Fincke recognized the need for
an American ham to continue ARISS contacts with schools.  In addition to his many pre-flight preparations and activities, he also
devoted as much time as possible to studying for his ham license.  In 10 days he studied for his license, passed the exam, and
obtained callsign KE5AIT on February 18.

The ARISS Team would like to express their gratitude to Lt. Col. Fincke for his hard work during these hectic pre-flight days.  We’d
like to thank him for his commitment to and belief in the ARISS Programme.
