Here you are!
This first adventure in Senegal ARISS is complete, and it was a great success. This Friday, October 23, 2009 at 10:20 in College IV Mbour, we were all present, more or less concerned about the proper outcome of this great challenge. With the support of amateur radio club 6W7PCT Saly, students have made under the special call sign 6V7SPACE, a radio contact with astronaut Frank De Winne from the International Space Station: OR4ISS.
The most visible activity of ARISS is to organize in VHF radio contact between schools worldwide and the International Space Station (ISS), thus contributing to the educational program launched into space by NASA in the USA.
