  1. La scienza va avanti, fa passi da giganti.🥰👏Il mio primo ricordo dei radio amatori: sono stati di grande, grande aiuto durante il terremoto in Friuli Venezia Giulia (Italy) dle 06 maggio 1976. Buon lavoro .👏👏

  2. This is my idea i was thinking a few days ago. You took it from my head via remote neural monitoring. I don't mind that ESA has inspired from my idea but i do mind that i am remote neural monitored and also why did they choose that frequency 145 MHZ? What message does the number 145 transmits?

  3. Amazing ! I didn´t know the ARISS Site yet. Casually I heard it would be even possible to make a random Contact to ISS. But I did not get into it so far. Maybe some Day I´ll try to get in QSO via F3E with one of my Transceivers here in my LAB, but that would be a bit more challenging as writing Comments here on YT =)
    Along the Way You make a good Contribution for promoting Ham Radio with this Video.

    73 to all ESA and ISS Crew Members, Cheers and all the Best from Radio Operator DO9SUB, Z SPACE SCIENCE LAB where there is Music for Spacemen ! =)
