B ham radio

When we read about ham radio operator Adrian Lane in Gloustershire chatting for 50 seconds with American astronaut flying over the UK we thought Adrian might be too exciting of a guy to write about on our blog.

But then we saw the words “he admitted that it was a mundane conversation.”

He commented “The adrenaline was pumping a little bit.” We were pleased to see he added the words “a little bit.”

His kids always know where to find him: “Where’s Dad? He’s in the shed again.”

Here’s the article we were reading in The Telegraph: “Radio ham talks to space station from garden shed

Thanks to Andy Oxley, Screen 3 Productions, for letting us know about this.
