    NO! but that's the BBC for you .....

    .... but I am sure the experience will one day inspire some of those children to take a closer look at our amazing hobby and with luck some of them will join us.

    It was a job well done.

    I also noticed the glaringly obvious omission.......too bad...congrats to the team there...maybe they would have had a more inclusive hearing from the ITV network...

    The ARRL claims they call the space station on their wireline phone.
