Woo hoo, another good test! Tonight KOIN TV came to shoot a segment for Monday. Chuck Sullivan, who's run the communications for expeditions for some years (we also wrote a book together some years ago!), came to help with the suit -- but more importantly to start working out comms with me. He took the headset and we talked through the radios for a while, while he was running the flight simulator and I was in the pressure suit, seated in the balloon car mockup (on the right), getting used to clearly communicating quantities, alarms, rates, going over checklists and so on. Photo shows Chuck being filmed as he talks about running the simulator program etc.
