I am so excited to announce that I was able to finally make contact with the International Space Station after 20 years of trying. I spoke with Col. Doug Wheelock, KF5BOC as NA1ISS on the ISS while traveling in the car downtown on two successful concurrent orbits. What fun and so amazing. It was an exhilarating experience.

Those with scanners may like to listen to 145.800 Mhz for communications coming down from the ISS. If you are looking for pass times in your area you can use the online prediction website There is a very good chance you will have the same opportunity as I did.

For more satellite tracking, look at Download the latest software and you can track any satellite you want. Works very good.
