An International Space Station school contact has been planned with participants at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Hay, NSW, Australia, Friday June 1st. AOS is approximately 10:44 UTC.
The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and VK6MJ. The contact should be audible over western Australia. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is expected to be conducted in English. Audio from this contact will be fed into the:
IRLP Node 9010 Discovery Reflector by the N9XH Ground Station
If conditions are favoarble we will relay audio to EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377) and *JK1ZRW* (277208) servers Streaming Audio at: https://sites.google.com/site/arissaudio/
Audio on Echolink & web stream is generally transmitted around 20 minutes prior to the contact taking place so that you can hear some of the preparation that occurs. IRLP will begin just prior to the ground station call to the ISS.
Please note that on Echolink there are automatic breaks of 1.5 seconds in the audio transmission. These occur every 2.5 minutes during the event.Breaks on IRLP are manual and occur approximately after every third question.
** Contact times are approximate. If the ISS executes a reboost or other manoeuvre, the AOS (Acquisition Of Signal) time may alter by a few minutes **
