Lehman High School, Kyle, TX to ISS audio 29th March 2011

Tuesday, 29 March 2011 14:28 by G7EIX

I was just looking at the track for the International Space Station today and noticed that the ISS was just coming over the horizon up north.  So I tuned to 145.800 and started recording the audio.

Turns out it was a scheduled contact with Catherine Coleman and Lehman High School in Kyle, TX.

Here is the ISSFANCLUB snippet regarding the contact.

“Lehman High School students in Kyle, Texas have been scheduled for an Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) contact on Tuesday, March 29 at 17:40 UTC. The youth have been learning about astronomy, geography and physics and have been studying for their amateur radio Technician licenses. Journalism students have established reporter contacts and will provide news briefs, interview material, photographs and video material to local news outlets.”

Here is the audio – approx. 7 mins long.   The start was chopped, as was the end, but still a good 7 mins pass after all.

STS133 Crew Return to Ellington Field

Thursday, 10 March 2011 19:19 by G7EIX

Myself and Robbi took a trip to Ellington Field to meet the STS-133 Discovery Crew on their return from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.   This was the very last flight of Discovery and now only two shuttle missions are left before the end of the program.

Sad Times.
