I have just received an email from Valentin regards the Shadow experiment on the ISS and ground operations.
now that iss crew is up to 6 the iss will now be able to work on more science research. Also the expedition 26 crew can now prepare for iss arives for next year. almost every space craft will vist the issfirst htv, the atv last shuttle fight dragon flights and progress, so it looks like a busy year.
Many thanks to Christophe for the quick reply to my ISS QSL's.
From me sending to receiving them today, 2 weeks.
Especially at Christmas time, quick turnaround!
well now that col wheelock is safely back on earth, is that it for voice contacts from the ISS.
At 5:45pm CST I received a phone call from Doug.
As we were finishing our conversation he asked if I would get the word out to the rest of the group that He misses us making our attempts as much as we miss him answering back "November Alpha 1 Sierra Sierra ... Welcome Aboard the International Space Station".
He hopes to maybe be able to get another mission aboard the ISS in the near future and be able to make contact with us once again.

Col wheelocks voice on the avarage scanner and the ham radio's in so many homes throughout the WORLD. come on Nasa read the hand writing on the wall.
This program ARISS/RS0ISS is a winner and promotes far more intrest in the space program,
Not for the onboard experements but the chance for ALL of us to hear and talk to the dedicated voices (and our tax dollars). in space from outside the confines of the earth.
