NASA Amateur Radio Video from ISS

Well, this one has actually been out on the web for several weeks, but I finally got around to viewing it. Col. Doug Wheeler Wheelock (KF5BOC) gives a short tour of the ISS and then demonstrates amateur radio operating (2 Meter FM) from the ISS. Col. Wheeler Wheelock was very active on the ham radio and I heard him on many passes but was not able to work him.

This is one of the best NASA videos concerning amateur radio on board the ISS, so don’t miss it!

  1. Hey – nice write-up. NASA and some other agencies have done well with space travel, but look what SpaceX did this morning! Why have governments launching rocket missions when privatizing can work for a portion of the price?! Anyway, cool site… I’m subscribed to your RSS feed now so I’ll be checking in regularly!

  2. Francisc,
    Thanks for the correction…. I don’t know how I messed that up. But we are both wrong….Doug’s callsign is KF5BOC.

    Thanks much! I’ll make the correction.
