ISS Commander Doug Wheelock - KF5BOC appreciates Ham Radio

Friday November 26 ISS Expedition 24 will return to earth. At 01.22 UTC, Soyuz 23S will undock from the International Space Station with Fyodor Yurchikhin RN3FI, Douglas H. Wheelock KF5BOC and Shannon Walker KD5DXB onboard.

Before leaving the Space Station, Commander Doug Wheelock recorded a video about Ham radio. He offered a nice mini tour of the ISS followed by a session of making ham contacts over N. America.
The 20 minutes video is available on NASA YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h73EYcyszf8

Doug's enthousiasm is overwhelming.
