Ham radio and space exploration have long been linked. The Shuttle astronauts and others have dutifully used Ham radio as a PR tool to reach earthbound students and others with an interest in space.    The 40th anniversary of the “Voyager” mission has been in the press of late.   JPL  released “free” posters marking the occasion.
