During 1996, a group of amateur radio operators involved in the communications with the MIR Space Station, decided to join into the "Mir Fan Club". In a very short time over 1200 enthusiasts from all over the world asked to participate, including Cosmonaut Valery Korzun, while leading crew #22. Nowdays MIR is not flying anymore, but here we are again with the same spirit and the same enthusiasm for the ISS, the new International Space Station.

NASA Now Accepting Applications for Hosting a Real-Time Conversation with ISS Crewmembers


NASA is now accepting proposals from US schools, museums, science centers and community youth organizations -- individually or working together -- to host an Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) contact between May 1, 2013 and November 1, 2013. To maximize these radio contact opportunities, NASA is looking for organizations that will draw large numbers of participants and integrate the contact into a well-developed education plan. Radio contacts are approximately 10 minutes in length. ARISS contacts are supported by the program’s US partners -- the ARRL and AMSAT -- and their member volunteers, as well as other international space agencies and Amateur Radio partners. Proposals are due January 28, 2013.

Kevin Ford OR4ISS with Liceo scientifico Giacinto De Sivo–Fondazione Villaggio dei Ragazzi, Maddaloni, Italy-Nov. 20, 2012-08:36 UTC-telebridge via IK1SLD

The high school Liceo scientifico “Giacinto De Sivo” of the “Fondazione “Villaggio dei ragazzi” of Maddaloni has been always committed, since its birth, to spreading out the scientific knowledge, particularly focusing on the main scientific aspects. Its main goal is to promote new teaching strategies able to put the students in a dynamic perspective. The arid knowledge, based only on handbooks, must necessarily be abandoned, to advantage an approach based on the research and on the critical discussion of the learning. The "Liceo scientifico" is a part of the "Villaggio dei Ragazzi" foundation, that is composed by 6 different fields of study: Technical, Aeronautics, Musical, Linguistic, Transports and Logistics and Scientific High Schools. All the 1500 students of the Foundation will be involved in the project promoted by the Scientific Lyceum as simple auditors, while our students will be active participants.
Age Students 14-18.
