ARISS 40th Anniversary Conference named ARRL Specialty Conference

December 4, 2023

The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) recently named the 40th anniversary celebration planned by Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) an ARRL-sanctioned Specialty Conference. This special designation from ARRL will provide additional marketing opportunities for the ARISS event including mentions in the ARRL weekly email and monthly journal.

The ARISS 40th Anniversary Conference will celebrate the positive impact of amateur radio on human spaceflight. The event takes place at the Center for Space Education at the NASA Kennedy Space Center Visitor's Center in Titusville, Florida February 22-24, 2024.

Amateur radio operation on human spaceflight first occurred in 1983 when astronaut Owen Garriott (W5LFL) made contact with amateur radio operators from the Space Shuttle Columbia.
