An International Space Station radio contact was made by Timothy Peake GB1SS with participants at St Richard’s Catholic College, Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex using the call sign GB4SRC. The event took place on Monday, April 18 at approximately 14:56 GMT (3:56 pm BST).

The contact was clearly audible on 145.800 MHz FM over Western Europe. I managed to catch him for a brief window here in Manchester on my Baofeng UV-82 on its stock antenna.
