I remember well Garriott's 1983 shuttle flight. Our family lived in Honduras at the time and I marveled at the possibility of hearing the space shuttle. One day I was doing something outside the house and also monitoring his frequency on my 2m HT. Suddenly, the squelch broke and it sounded as if the guy talking was standing next to me. Sure enough, it was W5LFL. That was a thrill!
