Hello everyone. I am new to amateur radio and just found this site. I am looking forward to trying to make contact with the space station. I just got my call sign in April and don't get on the radio much. I am a first year criminal justice major and it keeps me very busy. I just want to say hi from English, Indiana.

NASA GIVES "GO" FOR SPACE SHUTTLE LAUNCH ON JUNE 8

Space Shuttle

On Thursday, NASA senior managers selected June 8 as the official launch date for space shuttle Atlantis. Commander Rick Sturckow and his six crewmates are scheduled to lift off at 7:38 p.m. EDT on the STS-117 mission to the International Space Station.

During the 11-day mission and three spacewalks, the crew will work with flight controllers at NASA's Johnson Space Center, Houston, to install a 17-ton segment on the station's girder-like truss and deploy a set of solar arrays. The mission will increase the International Space Station's power capability in preparation for the arrival of new science modules from the European and Japanese space agencies.

Kenwood Radio Status update

ISS Amateur Radio

On Monday, May 21, Sunita Williams, KD5PLB, was able to restore a few commonly used configurations in the Kenwood radio. One of the modes that was partially restored was the packet system, although the operations will be on 145.825 simplex. Configurations of general voice communications and those used to support school contacts were also saved. A full restoration of the radio is required for a fully functional radio system. This requires access to a computer system and certification of the required software.
