ARISS Success -- Back (Bhac) School

Astonaut Mike Foale successfully contacted students the 
Back School, near Stornoway, Scotland, on Wednesday 17th 
March. Many months planning by the ARISS group and the 
Headmaster of Back School, Mr. John Maclean, went into the 
full 10 minute contact made with Cmdr. Foale.

Mike had visited the school for a day last summer during a 
holiday on the island before he set off for a six month 
stay in the ISS.

This contact was via telebridge with station WH6PN in 

Many thanks to Cmdr. Foale and the ARISS team for this 
success.  More information and a picture of the students 
is available at 

ARISS is a joint educational outreach programme between 
NASA, AMSAT (The Amateur Satellite Radio Corp.), the 
American Radio Relay League, the international partners in 
the Space Station programme, and international amateur 
radio organizations.  ARISS offers an opportunity for 
students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by 
talking directly with crewmembers of the International 
Space Station. Teachers, parents and communities see how 
Amateur Radio can energize youngsters about science,
technology, and learning.
