Really. The spirit of amateur radio.
It is interesting to hear the astronaut answers.
Imagine actively participate.
I managed with great effort to accomplish here ARISS last year.
With exceptional assistance of the Canadian team.
The work is hard. But we have a huge satisfaction
inform our Hobby can provide an event of this.
I was motivated to enroll another school. And now I want a Boy Scout group.
I encourage those who can.
