Months of planning came to fruition April 6th for The Hamilton Amateur Radio Club and the 58 Hamilton Scout Group, when the two groups could boast an excellent contact with Doctor David Saint-Jacques aboard the International Space Station. See the contact video here
Jeff Mahoney and Cathy Coward of The Hamilton Spectator were on site to experience the contact and excitement as the Scouts asked Dr. Saint –Jacques a series of questions as the ISS soared across the sky over Mount Nemo. See the write-up here
