Successful ISS Event Held Saturday January 18, 2014

MARC Black Key Logo Small-Alfa

The Meriden Amateur Radio held a successful ISS event at the SCOW center in Wallingford on Saturday January 18th, 2014. The STEM Academy students got to ask Astronaut Koichi Wakata from The Japanese Space Agency about 15 questions concerning life and activities aboard the International Space Station.

MARC members participating in this event were K1SEZ Paul, N1ZN Jim and N1API Al. Also present were Betsey K1EIC the Connecticut Section Manager and WA1SFN Douglas the Connecticut EC.

Greg Colonese a teacher at Pond Hill School in Wallingford conducted the event for the STEM Students. Other invited guest were present from Meriden and Wallingford and spoke after the event.

This event was also reported in the Sunday Edition of the Record-Journal. The full article with picture can be found at:

http://www.myrecordjournal.com/wallingfo...ation.html

The students talked by Telebridge to K6DUE the Amateur Station at Goddard Space Center in Maryland where they were phone patched through a station who was in contact with the ISS as it passed over the East Coast of the United Station. The total time of the contact was about 10 minutes and just before the ISS went below the horizon the whole room of about 80 people shouted "arigato" in unison to Koichi, which means thank you in Japanese.

Congratulations to all for a Successful Event!

Al - N1API
