Two more US astronauts have joined the ranks of Amateur Radio
licensees and both will fly aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour
during mission STS-67 in March.
 
Pilot William G. Gregory is KC5MGA and Payload Commander Tamara E.
Jernigan is KC5MGF.  Both took examinations with ARRL volunteer
examiners on January 19 and were issued call signs on January 25,
thanks to electronic filing with the FCC that has begun recently.
 
The 16-day STS-67 mission is scheduled for launch on March 2. Six of
Endeavour's seven crew members now have Amateur Radio licenses.
 
School groups in 26 places around the world are scheduled to make
voice contacts with the STS-67 crew as part of the Shuttle Amateur
Radio EXperiment (SAREX) component of this mission.
