Ham Radio Connects Michigan, Ohio Youngsters with ISS: "Youngsters at schools in Michigan and Ohio were the latest to have an opportunity to interview International Space Station Expedition 8 Commander Mike Foale, KB5UAC, via Amateur Radio. The contacts March 1 with Armstrong Middle School in Flint, Michigan, and February 20 with Glenwood Elementary School in Perrysburg, Ohio, were arranged via the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) program."

"Foale said that during his spare time, he enjoys using the NA1SS station for casual contacts, and he likes taking pictures of Earth—so he'll have something to remember his ISS experience."
