8-Year-Old Uses Ham Radio to Talk to Astronaut on the International Space Station

Isabella in the UK has had a chance of a lifetime conversation with Kjell Lindgren, an astronaut aboard the International Space Station.

She used her Dad, Matt M0LMK’s amateur radio to call fellow ham radio enthusiast and commander of the NASA SpaceX Crew-4 as it passed over the UK.

I caught up with Matt and Isabella to have a chat about this very memorable contact.

The Most POWERFUL UHF CB You Can Buy!

Often when buying a UHF CB, the first question to ask is "how much range does it have"?

The GME TX features class-leading 5 watt transmission power, an IP67 ingress-protection rating for outstanding performance and years of reliable use in the harshest Australian environments.

These radios are serious equipment for users who demand the ultimate in handheld UHF CB communication, for both work and play.
