What is this, you might ask. Well I’ll try to explain:
The International Space Station is circling around our planet since many years. On the the ISS is an amateur radio station manned by licensed operators in the crew. Today, Jan 7, 2013, the amateur radio station on ISS had a planned contact with a school in France, and I was lucky enough to listen to some fragments of the communication on my handheld transceiver, and what you can see in the picture is the display as I’m listening to ISS!
(Later I asked myself why on earth I was so stupid not making a video-recording of my reception…)
This is the beautiful QSL-card that I’ve got as a verification of my reception. (The next goal is to actually talk with the crew! But for that I’ll have to wait until summer when the orbit is higher above the horizon, plus good luck.)
