on the 11th Feb 2016, students from the Royal Masonic School For Girls in Rickmansworth carried out a scheduled ARISS contact with Tim Peake onboard the ISS, this contact was also the first where Tim Peake turned on and used the HamTV equipment.

The official video coverage can be found on Youtube and embedded below

I was also able to receive Tim Peake on the 145.800MHz FM downlink without any problem this time using the IC-910H rather than an SDR.
