I brought the handheld radio this morning to listen to the school contact with Tim Peake GB1SS - amsat UK I had good reception of the school contact. It did sound to me like there were a few starting problems: I heard the astronaut trying to call the school when the ISS was already rising in my location and I only heard answers to about 4 or 5 questions. On a west-to-east pass that went over the UK first this means the contact started a bit late. Comparing the list of prepared questions in ARISS contact planned for school in St. Albans - amsat UK with the report in Pupils make radio call to Tim Peake - BBC News shows indeed the fifth question was the last question answered.
