On Friday, October 7, 2022, from 15:14 GMT there will be a amateur radio contact from Antarctica with the International Space Station (ISS).
Students from the #38 Raul Alfonsin school at the Esperanza Antarctic base will ask questions that will be answered by astronaut Kjell Lindgren, KO5MOS, aboard the ISS, with a telebridge link being provided by ON4ISS, AMSAT Belgium.
This event was managed before ARISS (Amateur Radio on the ISS) by CETRA (Science, Education and Technology united by Amateur Radio) subcommission of AMSAT-LU, led by Luis Funes, LU8YY/Q, NASA/ARISS Telebridge.
AMSAT thanks COCOANTAR (ANTARCTIC Joint Command) for their collaboration and commitment to make this special event possible (1st Contact of the ISS with Antarctica), and to ARISS Canada for their valuable support.
This adds to the WSPR LU1ZV beacon active in Antarctica donated by AMSAT-LU.
