TODAY Scouts to Link Up with International Space Station 7/20/13

TODAY!  July 20th, the amateur radio station K2BSA, hosts a Q and A session with astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS).  Ten lucky Scouts were selected to pose the questions among those enrolled in Radio Merit Badge classes.  The actual link-up event will occur at 11:34 AM, with a preview of the link-up starting at 10 AM at K2BSA.  Scouts completing the Radio Merit Badge were already randomly selected.

The ISS radio link-up will last only 7 minutes for an event that will provide a lifetime memory.  The Jamboree radio station will cover the event LIVE at 98.3 FM.

Coincidentally, July 20th is also the 44th anniversary of US astronauts landing on the moon in 1969.
