ARLS022 Next shuttle all licensed

Space Shuttle mission STS-74 is scheduled for lift-off at 1255 UTC
on Saturday, November 11, with all five crew members holding Amateur
Radio licenses.

NASA astronaut James Halsell, KC5RNI, and Canadian Space Agency
astronaut Chris Hadfield, KC5RNJ, both received their licenses in
recent days, and both plan to participate in Shuttle Amateur Radio
EXperiment (SAREX) activities during the STS-74 mission.

Halsell is the shuttle's pilot, and Hadfield is a mission
specialist.

Shuttle Atlantis's commander for STS-74 is Ken Cameron, KB5AWP, who
used Amateur Radio from Atlantis during STS-37 in April 1991 and
from Discovery during STS-56 in April 1993.  This will be the third
mission Cameron has flown where the entire crew are licensed radio
amateurs.

Other STS-74 crew members are Mission Specialist Jerry Ross, N5SCW,
who was also a member of STS-37, and who operated ham radio aboard
the STS-55 Columbia mission in April/May 1993; and Mission
Specialist Bill McArthur, KC5ACR, who used ham radio aboard Columbia
during STS-58 in October/November 1993.
