My contact with Astronaut Commander Bill Mc Arthur on 18th of February 2006 at 8.05 PM Bangladesh time.
In the history of Bangladesh this is for the first time any Bangladeshi successfully contacted with astronauts on board of International Space Station. This contact was possible by Amateur Radio and continuous effort for one month. The success story was published by daily news papers, local satellite TV channel, DW radio and different Amateur Radio related web site including NASA.
This is one of the the daily news paper of Bangladesh who published the news in front page with great importance.
