Dan, This reply is seriously old as the event with the Ill. scouts took place July 19. Did this email get stuck somewhere for all that time?

Are the kids able to ask questions? That's a good list for sure. I was under the impression that there will be a pool of questions from Scouts in advance and only a select number was to be taken resulting in only a few being chosen to contact and ask their question. This would provide for an orderly list of contacts so that we don't have a traffic jam trying to get to talk to the ISS crew. I was under the impression that if we do not have an approved scout with an approved question we will just monitor the radio traffic as the ISS passes. Could someone clarify the intent and procedures here? We don't want to try and transmit if we are not supposed to. Any guidelines from the JOTA Masters? "May the Force Be With You!"
