Fairplay Colorado The Park County Radio Club and the Park County Public Library today announced on April 15th at 11:15 a.m. is set for 13 Park County students to communicate with the astronauts aboard the International Space Station using HAM radio. There will only be about a 10-minute window as the ISS passes over Park County. The ARISS event will take place at South Park High School in Fairplay, Colorado, 640 Hathaway St.
Through the Library’s STEAM (Science, Technology Engineering, Arts, & Math) program, over 200 students of all ages have spent the last eight months learning about the physics of radio signals, different frequency bands and technology, radio propagation, antennas, equipment and proper operation of amateur (HAM) radios. Both home and public school students have participated in the program lead by Dan Kern, President of the Park County Radio Club and Pat Shepard (PCPL Manager).
After an extensive application process the Park County Radio Club was one of only 7 groups selected to communicate with the ISS in the first half of 2019. Only 13 students have been selected to ask specific questions of the astronauts after submitting their questions to NASA for approval.
