Interesting article. As a HAM Radio operator talking to a satellite is quite common. The Ham community creates very low tech but effective satellites and are given space on some of the rockets launched. The Astronauts on the ISS have a radio and talk often to anyone that is scheduled or can get in a word. The radio and antenna are pretty simple it is merely knowing where and when to point. Very cool story on this. Thanks for the find!
