Beginning back in 2017 Dr Tony Monger began the process of organising a connection with the Space Station for a School in Sydney via amateur radio. Tony gave a talk to the Sydney Space Frontier Society in 2018 about this, but launch failures, crew changes and pandemics got in the way of the actual contact. Tony did not complete the contact until 26th April 2021, it was a great success.
This 2021 talk will cover some of the history of the process and the details of the final contact and a presentation of the Audio of the actual contact. We had hoped to have some of the Students in the contact could take part in this talk in person, but the COVID pandemic has intervened.
