    NASA Podcast - Amateur Space Radio

    Posted: 01 Jul 2022 11:57 AM PDT https://amsat-uk.org/2022/07/01/nasa-podcast-amateur-space-radio/

    On Episode 251 of NASAs Houston We Have a Podcast, Courtney Black describes
    the Amateur Radio program that connects astronauts in space to people and students around the globe.

    This episode was recorded on May 27, 2022.

    On this podcast we bring in the experts, scientists, engineers, and
    astronauts, all to let you know whats going on in the world of human spaceflight. Along with jam-packed days of science and maintenance,
    astronauts aboard the International Space Station dedicate some time to
    connect with people on Earth. It can be by an IP (internet protocol) phone
    to call a family member, a televised event to connect with media, or even amateur radio to connect with students.

    Amateur Radio on the International Space Station, or ARISS, helps create education opportunities that inspire students to pursue careers in
    STEM-related fields -thats engineering, math, science, or technology by having the opportunity to talk to crew members on orbit. Today, we hear the story of a former teacher who has seen first-hand how ARISS communication impacts students lives here on Earth, and how important this program is for future generations of space explorers.

    Courtney Black is an education project manager with the International Space Station U.S. National Laboratory. Before joining the National Lab, Black
    served as a formal educator for 14 years, educating elementary to high
    school students. Her passion for incorporating space education in lessons earned her recognition among her peers and allowed for students to
    participate in once in a lifetime opportunities, such as ARISS contacts and
    a downlink with the International Space Station.

    Black is a Space Station Ambassador, a Solar System Ambassador, teacher
    liaison to the Space Foundation, Space Center Houston SEEC (Space Educator Expedition Crew) crew member, and an education, an educator member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and the Civil Air Patrol.

    Black has presented at multiple conferences and is excited to continue presenting on topics to help bring awareness and encourage utilization of a myriad of resources available which aim to improve life on Earth through
    the investigation and exploration of space.

    And of course, were very excited to have her share these resources on
    todays episode of Houston We Have a Podcast. So lets get right into it.

    The Chair of the IARU Region 1 Spectrum Regulation and Liaison Committee,
    Barry Lewis G4SJH, took part in a joint session with the IARU-R1 Political Relations Committee (PRC) during the member society International Meeting convened during the HamRadio2022 Friedrichshafen event.

    The session highlighted the connections the SRLC maintains with Region 1 regulatory bodies and the work carried out since early 2021. This included engagement in the WRC23 preparatory activities in a number of regional
    bodies and the detailed study work both with ITU‑R and CEPT. The hot topics affecting amateur spectrum bands were summarised with particular attention being paid to the 23cm band topic on the agenda of WRC23.
