Hockaday contact monitored


From Amsat reflectors by Kenneth, N5VHO:
From my location in Houston, I and a coworker's kid listened to John Phillips answering the questions with great audio and super signals. I could even make out some of the Service Module background noise. Missed the first couple of answers but it sounded like he got through about 20 questions before signing with the school.

Nice little last minute demo. Gear was an arrow antenna and Knwd D-7.

Great job Keith - W5IU!

Progress Cargo Craft Docks With Space Station

ISS News

An unpiloted Russian cargo craft with more than two tons of supplies and equipment docked Saturday evening with the International Space Station. The ISS Progress 18 spacecraft docked at 8:42 p.m. EDT to the aft port of the Station's Zvezda Service Module. The docking was controlled by Station Commander Sergei Kirkalev using the Telerobotically Operated Rendezvous Unit (TORU). The automated Kurs docking system was not used because a problem with a Russian ground station prevented uplinking a command for Progress to begin the final approach. Krikalev was helped by NASA Science Officer John Phillips in the manual docking operation, which went flawlessly.
