The payload of LASA9 included a small transmitter broadcasting messages recorded by the students of St John Elementary School and St John Catholic High School in Perth Ontario. The recordings were broadcast over amateur radio frequencies. Students at the launch heard their messages coming from the edge of space. Some of the messages were mixed into a montage by local radio station CHLK – Lake 88 FM88.1 . The montage was featured in a Lake88 Interview with Barrie Crampton explaining the LASA 9 Mission Voices from the edge of space.mp3 originally broadcast April 28 at 4:15 EDT.
