K6DUE Certificate UPDATE

ARISS

* Copied from SAREX bulletin board*
All,
This is an update regarding the K6DUE ISS Commemorative Event Certificate.
The certificate printing was completed a few weeks ago and the certificates were distributed to the international delegates at the ARISS Meeting that has held as ESA ESTEC, Netherlands on March 26-27. The international delegates planned to forward these to their QSL distributors.
In the USA, I understand that the certificates were mailed out this past week. So those that made contacts should see these in the mail soon.
From a statistics standpoint, approximately 130 hams will be receiving certificates. Congratulations!!

73, Frank Bauer, KA3HDO

What a day to hear the ISS !

ISS Amateur Radio

I have been looking forward to hear direct Voice operation near my QTH since months. Then I noticed about the possibility to hear the pass of the ISS over France and the school contact planned for afternoon, 20:28 local time.
I prepared all my material (Talky kenwood TH-79 + Homebrew 3 element Yagi 2 m).
My plan was to go to a mountain near my home and record the conversation from astronaut Mike Foale.....
