    Radio Amateur VK5ZAI on TV show

    This video shows Tony Hutchison VK5ZAI on the Channel 7 Today Tonight TV show talking about amateur radio and the ARISS schools program.

    The show provides some great insights as to how Amateur Radio can provide support for NASA as well as raise public awareness through the ARISS schools program.

    Tony VK5ZAI has provided many Telebridge links for the International Space Station (ISS) to schools around the world. An ISS Telebridge contact is where a dedicated ARISS amateur radio ground station, located somewhere in the world, establishes the radio link with the ISS. Voice communications between the students and the astronauts are then patched over regular telephone lines.

    Hi Tony....

    Thanks for being our Master of Ceremonies with our ARISS contact at Baiting Hollow Scout Camp (AA2BH) a couple summers ago! it was a Telebridge via Nancy Rocheleau WH6PN on Diamondhead, Oahu did our uplink. I've done 6 ARISS contacts but working with your team was an absolute dream, considering we had one week to put the whole thing together and pulled it off flawlessly.

    Boys who were there regularly shake my hand and thank me, parents stop me in stores and tell me how it was a defining moment in their kids' lives, but its the dedication of your team of 9 that makes it possible. It was an honor to work with you. Nice job and THANK YOU ALL.
