The SpaceX CRS-10 Dragon spacecraft was berthed to the International Space Station on 23 February 2017, at 13:12 UTC, using the Station’s robotic Canadarm2.
Message from Frank Bauer (KA3HDO) :
Included as part of today’s successful launch of the SpaceX Dragon vehicle to ISS is an ARISS Ericsson 2 meter VHF radio. This radio will replace the Ericsson radio that failed a few months ago. The VHF radio is used for school group contacts and amateur packet radio in the Columbus module.
