THANK YOU for your coverage of the Poway elementary school's radio contact with the International Space Station yesterday!
Just FYI, "CB radio" was not involved. It was "amateur radio" that accomplished the feat. The same radio service and equipment that San Diego County has written in to their county-wide disaster plan. A MUCH different set of equipment and mentality compared to CB radio.
Whereas unlicensed CB operators might talk across town with their radios, amateur radio literally talks across the globe. And beyond - as we spoke to the ISS in space!
