Weird title in the URL, I'd almost call it clickbait, especially since
the 'revised title' and the article text explains in more normal terms how
special it is to have a contact with the ISS as an amateur.

On a personal note: I will call CQ ISS when an ISS pass is at a fitting
time for me. It would be awesome to have an astronaut answer some day. The
yell when that happens will probably be louder than the one I made when I
had my first contact over an amateur satellite.
