Tracking the ISS
Perhaps like me, you enjoy watching the International Space Station pass overhead. It’s wonderful to see – a testament to humankind’s ingenuity. If you look carefully, even with the naked eye you can discern the shape of the massive solar panels that look like ‘wings’ on the side of the spacecraft.
As radio amateurs, we can listen for radio operation from space. Voice contacts have been heard over the last few days, so you may want to listen on 145.800MHz when the spacecraft is in range.
When is it in range? I just noticed this handy Google ‘Gadget’ which shows when the ISS is passing over a particular area!
