Croatian Students To Communicate With Space Station Astronauts


Students from the Ruder Boskovic Technical School in Zagreb will soon be communicating with the International Space Station using amateur radio communications as part of a project that got underway today with the school and the Croatian DX Club.

In the first phase of the project, 80 students will be trained in using amateur radio communications. The best 20 amateur radio operators from the final exam at the end of the educational will then have the opportunity to communicate directly with astronauts at the International Space Station. Each of the 20 students will be able to ask the astronauts one question, reported daily newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija.
