Today's Tim Peake ISS contact was a great success

I was so proud to be part of the team that let youngsters talk to astronaut Tim Peake on the ISS from the CNS School in Norwich today.

There wasn't a dry eye in the hall!

The lowish six-minute pass went incredibly well thanks to the technical team from ARISS.

Each of the youngsters got to ask a question and we even got in a few more. Good video link too.

Norfolk Amateur Radio Club has been heavily involved in the event and helped run workshops at the recent "Ground Control" day.

Our special event station with the call MX0YHC also made around 100 contacts on 40m thanks to Chris G0DWV and Andy M0NKR.

Good luck with the next link-up
