"...Cady (Coleman) prepared for and completed the installation of a new amateur/ham radio station in the COL (Columbus Orbital Laboratory). Later in the day, Cady checked out the radio's audio for proper functioning by talking with a ham operator on the ground. [Activities involved first retrieving all necessary hardware from stowage and setting it up in COL, then installing the VHF Ericsson Transceiver station at the ER3 (EXPRESS Rack 3).]"
