Cyprus contacts the International Space Station

January 29/01/06 11:41UTC
Limassol, Cyprus

The Limassol amateur radio station 5B8BE establishes contact with the International Space Station(ISS). The contact was with ISS flight commander Bill McArthur(NA1ISS) who was in orbit above the island at that time. The contact was actually achieved during the end of the Austalian Open final where the Cypriot tennis player Marcos Pagdatis was playing.

An article confirming the contact can be found here.

I will be posting a picture of the QSL(contact confirmation receipt) card when is received.
