    Default ARISS on ARN

    Watch/listen to the Amateur Radio Newline episode this week - the Flabob Airport ARISS project is mentioned!

    HAM RADIO IN SPACE: ISS CONTACT TO HISTORIC FLABOB AIRPORT

    A group of students are preparing to talk to an astronaut aboard the International Space Station, but not from a traditional classroom setting. According to ARISS Technical Support Volunteer Clint Bradford, K6LCS, the 10 minute live question-and-answer session will take place in hangar 16A at the historic Flabob Airport which is the seventh oldest surviving airport in California.

    The Flabob Airport to the I-S-S contact opportunity is being coordinated by The Tom Wathen Center's Kathy Rohm with technical support provided by K6LCS. The contact is slated to begin at at 10:03 AM Pacific Daylight time on the morning of April 19th and should last for about the usual 10 minutes.
