broadcast from NASA I was subjected to an unusual interference a few days ago by a taxi signal from Argentina. The space agency was following the activities of astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS) when they heard a driver asking for an address. “1-5-0, did you say, from Irigoyen?” , is the message that can be heard in the middle of a live broadcast sent by NASA, as two Russian cosmonauts walk outside the International Space Station to change the coolant. During the broadcast, these Spanish lyrics were attributed to unintentional open-mic interference. However, Argentine journalist Manuel Mazzanti realized when he heard the transmission that it was a voice with an Argentine accent asking for an address on a street named after former president Hipolito Yrigoyen (1852-1933) or former senator and former governor of Buenos Aires Bernardo. De Irigoyen (1822-1906). Mazzanti, who has devoted himself to covering space issues in the United States, then posted on social networks a video of the interfering transmission that went viral.

Last Tuesday, at the time of the overlap, the International Space Station was 430 kilometers above Argentine territory, according to the local press. “The band that radio taxis use is UHF. No wonder the space station transmits amateur radio once a month on the same frequency which is why they pick it up. In this case something was left open when they were doing a spacewalk mission To change the coolant “, as explained by the scientific celebrity Esteban Tablon this Sunday to the station” LN + “. Tablon highlighted that the space station, which orbits Earth several times a day, was at that moment in the early hours of Tuesday “exactly over Buenos Aires.” There are 430 kilometers in a straight line, without any kind of overlap or obstacle. Apparently, the frequency with which they communicate with the Earth Grouper has been left open. Then a radio taxi from Buenos Aires appeared on the satellite station broadcasting audio to the entire world,” he commented.
