Thisis my 1st look at your home page. It looks OUTSTANDING. An APRS OP / WA6LIE provided your web page address. ISS is a new Packet experience. I'll need to read over the "manual" and give it a go from my home. I have a "back up" TNC I could configure to the ISS COMMS parameters. It's great to have this opportunity for astronaut / "ham's" to be on board! Several years ago I worked a spaceshuttle with my ICOM-2AT & recvd. a QSL card. I was impressed! Have a safe journey and the best to you all. "VR" Bob Spencer/W6HMC HMC, USNR (TAR) (ret) Anchors Aweigh & Semper fi!

One year ago this week, NASA ground controllers deactivated Deep Space
1--an extraordinary spacecraft that tested a dozen advanced technologies
and then, as a bonus, flew perilously close to the nucleus of a comet.
The craft is asleep now, permanently, but perhaps it has one more
contribution to make ... to the field of archeology in the next
