ARISS: Amateur Radio on the International Space Station

With the help of Amateur Radio clubs and ham radio operators, space shuttle astronauts have been speaking over the ham airwaves while in orbit. They are talking directly with large groups of the general public, showing teachers, students, parents and communities how Amateur Radio energizes youngsters about science, technology, and learning. The program was called SAREX, the Space Amateur Radio Experiment and is now called ARISS, Amateur Radio on the International Space Station.

ARISS is sponsored by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

For media personnel: If you want photos related to ARISS, or wish to research stories about ARISS, here are two useful links:
