Talk by radio with the members of the ISS.

Astronaut Peggy Whitson, Expedition 5 Flight Engineer, holds one of the Amateur Radio antennas prior to installation on the ISS.
The International Space Station, presently nearly complete, is permanently manned by teams of astronauts and cosmonauts. Most have an amateur radio licence.
Amateur Radio societies from the ISS partner countries, in USA, Canada, Russia, Europe and Japan, have set up ARISS - Amateur Radio on International Space Station.
ARISS is a volunteering working group devoted to develop and put into operation the onboard amateur radio station. ARISS-Europe is the European branch of ARISS.


ARISS is an international volunteering working group devoted to develop and put into operation the onboard amateur radio station. The main goal is to provide educational outreach to the youth of the world, in collaboration with the space agencies. Specialised satellite amateur radio operators across the world offer their expertise, their equipment and their time to establish the radio link with the space station.

ARISS counts five Regions: USA, Canada, Europe (Africa, Middle-East), Russia, Japan (Far East and Australia)


The space agencies entrust ARISS with the task of implementing amateur contacts for schools, allowing students to put questions to astronauts on board the International Space Station and receive their answer direct from space..

Interested schools submit an Application (includes Authorisation and use of personal information) and present an educational project.

In European Region (Europe, Africa and Middle-East), Schools and Youth organizations, interested in setting up an ARISS radiocontact with an astronaut onboard the International Space Station, are invited to submit their requests from September to November and from February to April. The documents shall be e-mailed to the ARISS School Selection Manager
