The International Space Station, presently nearly complete, is permanently manned by teams of astronauts and cosmonauts. Most have an amateur radio licence.
Amateur Radio societies from the ISS partner countries, in USA, Canada, Russia, Europe and Japan, have set up ARISS - Amateur Radio on International Space Station.
ARISS is a volunteering working group devoted to develop and put into operation the onboard amateur radio station. ARISS-Europe is the European branch of ARISS.
