Amateur Ham Radio on BBC Radio Norfolk

UK Amateur, Steve Nichols G0KYA has gained the hobby some good publicity for amateur radio letting his local media outlets know he had received a signal from Tim Peake on the ISS 

If you do hear and record Tim do contact your local media as they are fascinated by the whole business and it brings good PR for amateur radio in general
— Steve Nichols G0KYA

He was lucky enough to hear astronaut Tim Peake's ISS contact with another UK school on Thursday 11th February 2016. Not only did he record it, but he sent out a press release and ended up being interviewed about it by BBC Radio Norfolk on Friday.
