This may open a can of worms-However,  I'd like to see a "real" ham on the ISS.  We all know what that means.  Granted they all take the tech license to be "official" amateur radio operators.  However we don't see the "passion" in the belly to get on the air.  There have been a few up there that had that and it was noticable.

So I think everyone read the announcement ARRL made before FD.  Now 
that FD weekend is at an end, can someone explain to me why NASA 
couldn't let the astronauts have 10 minutes on the radio for one pass? 
 I mean were they having issues with the radio itself? 

I still don't see a 26th timeline as I thought that might give me a 
clue on why this weekend was an epic failure (I mean I couldn't even 
hear the digipeater at times).
