Hello All,
The linkup between South Hobart Primary School was a success with  
astronaut Doug Wheelock answering 7 of the 10 questions.   Despite some 
difficulty   for the first 2-3 minutes signals then came up and held 
well till LOS. The t'bridge was through K6DUE operated by Dave Taylor 
W8AAS and assisted by Mark Steiner K3MS and Burnie Hahn N6ZOA  After the 
ISS went over the horizon Dave did a brilliant job and answered the 3 
remaining student questions. Echolink was handled by Graham G7EVY.   
Justin Giles-Clark VK7TW setup at the school.
Thanks again everyone for a job well done.

Regards,  Tony.
