Default Way cool TV

I've been watching the space walks on NASA TV here. Since I don't have cable or sat. TV the Internet is the way to go.

Absolutely amazing what these folks are doing up there and the professionalism is top notch.

Nice link Greg! Thanks for adding it, I've put it into my favorites. I've always enjoyed watching that kind of stuff and have used the ISS finder for eye viewing on a clear night from the home QTH. Some day I'll actually try working them on U/V.

one of my prized possessions is a QSL card from the MIR space station.

Haven't worked the ISS yet. But now I have plenty of time.

Hey !!! Cool Greg. Thanks for posting. We use Dish Satellite and I've been missing the walks.

I keep the ISS downlink programmed in my 2 meter rig here at home. The rig is on scan most of the time. I hear them pass regularly. Sometimes they are in voice contact with other hams and some times they seem to be using packet radio or some sort digital mode. I have digi'ed thru them in the past but never actually spoken with them. That's neat that you were able to Wade.
