I've had a couple of nibbles here, but NO BITES !
I've already documented in screenshots and texts here ,
about one of the first contacts with the International Space Station, using DSL as the OS for computer operations.
Now, using DSL , and a few extensions to plot and schedule a common window, and log/send/receive communications ,
I truly want be " the first " to make a DSL -TO- DSL contact via ISS.
But I need a " second " player here.. it's a 2 man goal.
And, they both have to be able to operate DSL and ham radio together.
Once completed , and verified thru ISS traffic logs, this is what you will receive to verify the valid contact.
I have 2 of these QSL confirmations already,
as well as 2 from the late MIR spacestation ,
which includes one where I spoke to Jerry Leninger,KC5HBR
an American astronaut onboard ISS, from my car one night commuting home.
He likes keeping up with baseball scores, he told me.
It looks like this...
The NASA supported ARISS project is very active in space.
Here are some excellent links describing more information.
