Students to speak to spaceman Peake

| December 23, 2015

Students at Sandringham School, St Albans are expected to speak to Tim Peake aboard the International Space Station some time during the period of 5 to 10 January, using the special event call sign GB1SAN.

This is the first of several planned schools contacts in the coming weeks.

Three of the students have been trained by Verulam Amateur Radio Club to qualify them for their Foundation licences.

This contact should be the high point of the school’s four-day Festival of Space.

As part of the festival, members of the Verulam club will be running a station from the school using the club’s call sign GX3VER.

The station will operate on all bands and with various modes.

For more information see the Verulam Amateur Radio Club website.
