REGINA – Space: The final frontier of man — and ham.
Murray Crandon was one of several ham radio operators around the country who took their hobby to new heights last week, by making contact with the International Space Station as it passed over Canada.
Mr. Crandon, known on the air as “VE5MC,” was at home in Moose Jaw, Sask., when he was able to speak with space tourist Richard Garriott on board the space station.
