Steve Nichols G0KYA got some good publicity for amateur radio by letting his local media outlets know he had received a signal from Tim Peake on the ISS.
He was lucky enough to hear astronaut Tim Peake’s ISS contact with another UK school on Thursday, February 11, 2016. Not only did he record it, but he sent out a press release and ended up being interviewed about it by BBC Radio Norfolk on Friday.
Steve says: “If you do hear and record Tim do contact your local media as they are fascinated by the whole business and it brings good PR for amateur radio in general.”
