ISS qso relayed live over echolink 1637gmt 29/3/2005

Postby g3zhi » Mon Mar 28, 2005 11:12 pm

The next two contacts between the International Space Station (ISS) and
schools are as follows:

Tuesday, 3/29/2005 at 16:37UTC

Friday, 4/8/2005 at 18:12UTC

The times given are when the ISS comes into view for the involved ground
stations. I will be connected to the AMSAT and *EDU_NET* conference room
servers from about one hour before the contact starts. Introductory
comments will commence about 10 minutes before each contact, and there will
be some more comments for about five minutes after each contact.

Please see the "Calendar of events" at www.amsat.org for more

***Audio should be available for this contact***
Via EchoLink in the following conference rooms:

AMSAT node 101377

EDU_NET node 77992

See further notes below

Please note, the amateur equipment on the ISS will be
turned off prior to the beginning of the contact. It will
be returned to service as quickly as possible.

ARISS is an international educational outreach program
partnering the participating space agencies, NASA, Russian
Space Agency, ESA, CNES, JAXA, and CSA, with the AMSAT and
IARU organizations from participating countries. ARISS
offers an opportunity for students to experience the
excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with
crewmembers on-board the International Space Station.

Teachers, parents and communities see, first hand, how
Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS can energize
youngsters' interest in science, technology, and learning.

Further information on the ARISS programme is available on
the website www.rac.ca/ariss (graciously hosted by
the Radio Amateurs of Canada). Information about the next
scheduled ARISS contact can be found at

EchoLink Notes

The contact between the ISS and school lasts for about 15
minutes +/-. During this contact, we appreciate everyone's
patience and understanding. We must mute everyone except
Dieter, KX4Y to avoid inadvertent, interfering
transmissions into the conference room. Thanks for your
understanding and cooperation.

Thank you & 73,
