Int'l Space Station QSO's

This video was made shortly before Thanksgiving 2010.

Inside the International Space Station, Expedition 25 commander Doug Wheelock gave a tour of the Russian segment of the orbiting complex, including the Soyuz spacecraft docked there.  Wheelock showed off the station's HAM radio, using the call sign "NA1SS," to talk with people on the ground as the station flies overhead at 17,500 miles per hour. 

The transciever on board the spacecraft was a Kenwood TM-D700A, which sells new t oday on Ebay for about $750.
