Radio Norfolk interview about Tim Peake and ISS

ESA astronaut Tim Peake.
I was lucky enough to hear astronaut Tim Peake's ISS contact with another UK school on Thursday 11th February 2016.

Not only did I record it, but I sent out a press release and ended up being interviewed about it by BBC Radio Norfolk.

The Norfolk Amateur Radio Club had put on a workshop the next day at the City of Norwich School for students who are going to be involved in their contact with Tim in two weeks, so it was very fortuitous.

You can hear the ISS downlink on 145.800MHz and you don't need a particularly fancy antenna.

If you do hear and record Tim do contact your local media as they are fascinated by the whole business and it brings good PR for amateur radio in general.

Anyway, here is the audio from Radio Norfolk in MP3 format.
