Voice contact with space station astronaut

Matty 2D0BCR reports the following:-
"I was listening this morning (Monday 11-Dec-06) for packet (pass started around 00:30), and heard RS0ISS calling CQ, so I hurriedly unplugged the TNC, plugged the mic back in, set the repeater shift and called, - was very, very chuffed when Thomas Reiter returned the call, had a quick chat as there were other stations calling and got 5+9 for an antenna up in the loft!
Very happy to have my first astronaut in the log!"

A 2mt contact
from the IOMwith the space station can only be described as a great contact.
