via the ARRL: New ISS Crew Member’s Ham Radio Contact to Highlight a Wider Educational Effort

Recent International Space Station (ISS) arrival Ricky Arnold, KE5DAU, will take the mic of the station’s NA1SS on April 10 to answer questions posed by students at Pinson Valley High School in Alabama, where ham radio already has a foothold. Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) will sponsor the ham radio event with Arnold, who arrived on station on March 23 with Drew Feustel and Oleg Artemyev. Pinson Valley HS already has its own Amateur Radio club, and students there recently took part in ARRL’s School Club Roundup (SCR), in the process learning about setting up antennas, propagation, and the basics of making a ham radio contact. The April 10 contact will highlight a wider educational effort at Pinson HS.
