Please join us in listening to an Amateur Radio on the International Space Station school contact with Salem Elementary School in Apex, North Carolina on Wednesday, March 21 at 14:09 UTC via ground station VK5ZAI in Australia. This contact is part of a comprehensive education plan which will pique students’ interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
Audio from this contact will be available on the:
EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377) and *JK1ZRW* (277208) servers
IRLP Node 9010 Discovery Reflector
Streaming audio at: https://sites.google.com/site/arissaudio/
Audio on Echolink Webstream 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 maneuver, the AOS (Acquisition Of Signal) time may alter by a few minutes
