Default Ham Radio Ad

Just a warm fuzzy about a kid who uses the internet to figure out how to talk to the ISS using ham radio.

The lid needs a license, though...

I never spoke to the MIR, but I did leave a packet email in the drop box. Besides the south pole that was the coolest thing I have ever done in ham radio.

That QSL card has it's own frame!

Very nice ad! In spite of its' small technical inaccuracies it is inspiring to see a youth very much "into" communications and electronics! Speaking of inaccuracies...can you identify one thing present in the ad that, sadly, you don't hear of very much about anymore! Very sad but true... answer (backwards) below. Thanks es 37...I mean 73!.
