I didn't know this was possible. They can't talk long, roughly 10 minutes due to speed but still neat. This would be a great thing for grade school and high high schools to start a Ham program. The beginning of the movie CONTACT she was messing around with Ham radio as a child. It would have been cool if she contacted astronauts to progress the story of her childhood. Enjoy:

Ham radio can operate around the world since they can contact satellites
They could even monitor military frequencies
Don't know why the wouldn't monitor NASA also

My fathers been a HAM my entire life and I got my license although I let it expire (really should retest) but I remember as a kid thanks to dad I was able to talk to the space shuttle. It was really cool.

As far as talking around the world. Which is cool, but first contest I operated was a world wide contest. I called out the station call sign and a few seconds later I heard myself. I radio signal traveled around the planet and was picked back up by the antenna. It was kinda weird the first time it happened.

That is cool!

"Hey honey? What did you do in school today?"
"Talked with an astronaut on the space station..."
