Amateur radio session from the ISS (video)

Today, April 18, amateur radio enthusiasts around the world celebrate their “professional” holiday – World Amateur Radio Day.

The holiday was founded by the International Union of Radio Amateurs on April 18, 1925 in Paris and today, radio amateurs from more than 150 countries of the world are members of this organization.

We, aboard the ISS, are undergoing an experiment “About Gagarin from Space” – an open transmission from the Russian Segment of the ISS via an amateur radio communication channel to ground receiving stations of radio amateurs around the world of photographic materials dedicated to the life and work of the first cosmonaut of the planet Yuri Gagarin.

Happy holiday, radio amateurs around the world!
