STS133 launch delay

We can be certain that the STS133 crew is anxious to get on with their job, but safety comes  first. We wish them a successful mission…
Currently the schedule only says “..not before December 17“.

Even with recent launch delays, our club members have been fairly active on the bands with our special event station. We have gotten behind in posting results, so this is a bit of catching-up. Here you see Andy – KJ4WIN making contacts.

STS133 Mission Patch

STS133 Mission Patch

Thanks everyone for the enthusiasm and interest in the human space flight program. We really enjoy hearing from everyone, it is amazing how many folks have either worked in this industry, or have relatives or freiends that have been connected with the space program over the 50 years of NASA.

73 for now.

  1. Any possibility of obtaining a mission photo and or patch through you folks? SASE was sent for previous contact for certificate and QSL.

  2. I believe that the certificate is based upon the crew photo, but I have only seen the pre-production materials. The images used here on the web site were from the website. We will try to get some of the crew photos from the Public Affairs Office (PAO), but I really don’t know about the patches…
    I have seen reference to patches on – I assume they sell them on-line from their web site.
    Thanks for the contact Doug, and your comment … /;^)
