In addition to the information already posted, last Monday the CBC
(Canadian Broadcasting Corp) show "AS IT HAPPENS" had a ~6 minute audio
piece on the Humber College/VA3JUV contact with a very enthusiastic
Sandra Magnus (KE5FYE) on the ISS end. Here in the Balto/Wash area, AS
IT HAPPENS is carried on WAMU (88.5).

To listen to the AIH audio, fetch this CBC .wmv file
<http://www.cbc.ca/mrl3/8752/asithappens/20090202-aih-1.wmv>  &  QSY to
a time ~16:50. The ISS audio is really great at ~21:30. ARISS is
referred to as an "offshoot of NASA" at ~18:40 and "ham radio" is
mentioned once.
