International Space Station 360 for VR or planetarium ...

Did you know that HAMs have an opportunity to contact and talk to astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS)? Well we

do, and I was fortunate enough to listen to the ISS several days ago. If you would like to try here are some website that will show you how.

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) will tell you about it and what you have to do.

Amateur Radio Satellite Corp (AMSAT) will allow you to calculate when the not only the ISS will pass but many other satellites currently in orbit.
