Students call space station with home-built radio

TORONTO — Four Toronto college students have accomplished a technological feat that their teachers are calling a first.

The Humber College seniors made contact with the International Space Station Monday with a radio system they designed and built themselves.

School officials say that, to their knowledge, that’s never been accomplished by students at the college level.

The project got off the ground about a year ago as the students looked for a way to apply knowledge gained from their radio communication courses.
