posted 21 Jan 2012, 17:34 by Onno Benschop
Today we are excited to announce that the Hills Amateur Radio Group will be participating in its first ARISS contact, the 5th in Western Australia. The official press release is online for your fun and enjoyment.

The HARG coordination team is currently made up of four members, Meg (VK6LUX), Miles (VK6MAB), Alan (VK6PWD) and Onno (VK6FLAB). You can contact them with any questions or comment. Meg is also the media contact for the event at the WA State Records Office where she works. Miles has previously made an ARISS contact on the 11th of April 2011, with John XXIII College in Western Australia.

From a technology perspective, we're working with Tony (VK5ZAI) who is the ARISS coordinator in Australia to work out what is possible and feasible.
