During 1996, a group of amateur radio operators involved in the communications with the MIR Space Station, decided to join into the "Mir Fan Club". In a very short time over 1200 enthusiasts from all over the world asked to participate, including Cosmonaut Valery Korzun, while leading crew #22. Nowdays MIR is not flying anymore, but here we are again with the same spirit and the same enthusiasm for the ISS, the new International Space Station.

The best ISS / Ham Radio ad - ever -

ISS Amateur Radio

I'm sure that what you see in this video looks pretty familiar to many of you because that's exactly what happened to many of us, myself included. Ironically, the link was suggested to me by Maryam 9K2MD, a young girl from Kuwait who got her ham radio license for the sole purpose of talking to Sergey Krikalev (onboard ISS) and eventually succeeded in doing so.

First ISS Contact from Ghana (9G2AA)

Hi, this is the first sstv signal that I received from my lab (Intelligent Space Systems laboratory-9G2AA) in Ghana, on saturday, 6th of September 2014. The frequency was 144.802Mhz. There is pause at the beginning of the recording when I was trying to send voice uplink to the ISS. Still trying to decode it and still trying to make voice contact with them. I removed the breaks in the audio in other to reduce the size of the audio
