ISS Over Ottawa (part 2)


Space Station contact was successful today. Some drama. We called and called starting at 1456Z but no answer, no answer.Then suddenly the space station could be heard faintly calling us. We answered and then the ISS appeared over the horizon.All was well. Just why they were two minutes late will have to be sorted out with the debrief on the NASA conference call. Everything proceeded smoothly after that. Twelve of the students got to ask questions up to the ISS. Once nice touch: the school band played the theme music from the movie 2001 just before the contact. It sure set the mood. Steve Regan VA3MGY
