MOVIE on Amateur radio that speak with a Russian Cosmonaut !

The Soviet cosmonaut remained in space while the USSR was no longer there !

The protagonist of the film "Sergio & Sergei" is inspired by his story, and befriends a Cuban amateur radio!

When the Soviet Union disappeared, it changed everything for a lot of people; those who lived there, those around them, and many around the world. And finally, for the Soviet cosmonaut Sergej Konstantinovič Krikalëv: instead he was in space, in the Mir space station, representing a state that in the meantime was gone.

Couple minutes of school contact with mobile radio..

Just a couple minutes of a school contact that I recorded a few months back. I was planning to go out with an FT-60R and my Arrow, but was running a fever of 102 that morning. I was listening for a few minutes already when I thought to make a video recording. Radio is a TH-9800, antenna is a Fong DBJ-1 masted at ~30’, ISS was passing at ~12 degrees (IIRC).

Description: 
Heard him answering questions during 2 passes over North America from my QTH in Michigan. I assume they were the scheduled school contacts as he never mentioned any callsigns, only boys/girls names, that is why I did not call him. Second pass was at 1:20pm local time or 17:20 Zulu. Second pass was only at 8.8º max elevation but they were strong signal S9+ for about 9 minutes. I'm using an 8 element Cubex Quad on VHF. 73 N8ZI Tom
