New 2m ham radio station on the ISS

Postby V51JP » Thu Apr 28, 2011 7:38 pm

NASA reports that Catherine Coleman, KC5ZTH, (Colonel, USAF, RET.) has installed another Amateur Radio station on the ISS.

The new 2m station is situated in the Columbus module.

The NASA report says:
"Afterwards, Cady prepared for and completed the installation of a new amateur/ham radio station in the COL (Columbus Orbital Laboratory).

"Later in the day, Cady checked out the radio’s audio for proper functioning by talking with a ham operator on the ground. Activities involved first retrieving all necessary hardware from stowage and setting it up in COL, then installing the VHF Ericsson Transceiver station at the ER3 (EXPRESS Rack 3)."
