McKenzie ARISS contact successful

Hi all,

McKenzie Public School in Almonte, Ontario Canada, just had a very successful 
ARISS contact with NA1SS at 2001-11-23 10:45 UTC.  This was the second 
Canadian school to talk to the ISS via the ARISS program.  Frank KD5OPQ did 
another outstanding job.  Control ops Bob Clermont VE3AKV and Neil Carleton 
VE3NCE did a great job.  There were about 400 people in attendance which is 
terrific since the contact happened at 5:45am local time.

All 9 kids had their question answered and there was enough time for Neil to 
ask one.

The audio was put out on the web via an IRLP reflector.  There were several 
radio stations, one TV, and at least one newspaper in attendance.

Congratulations to NA1SS and the kids at McKenzie!

ARISS mentor for McKenzie
