A nice summary from the "ARRL Letter" concerning the recently concluded 3rd Annual ISS Research and Development Conference held in Chicago.  Amateur Radio’s role on board the International Space Station (the ARISS program) was a key topic of the meeting. According to the press release, ARISS is "the first and longest running educational outreach program involving the ISS."  ARISS has been active since late 2000, and has conducted 900 contacts with schools on Earth.  In addition to encouraging students to enter science, technology, and engineering careers, ARISS provides an opportunity for Amateur Radio to conduct space experiments and to test new technologies.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
