Upcoming ARISS Contact Schedule as of 2002-03-04 08:00 UTC

The ARISS (a joint effort of AMSAT, the ARRL, NASA, the ARISS international 
partners including Canada, Russia, the European Partners, and Japan) 
operations team wishes to announce the following very tentative schedule for 
ARISS school contacts.  This schedule is very fluid and may change at the 
last minute.  Remember that amateur radio use on the ISS is considered 
secondary.  Please check the various AMSAT and ARISS webpages for the latest 
announcements.  Changes from the last announcement are noted with (***).  
Also, please check MSNBC.com for possible live retransmissions 
(http://www.msnbc.com/m/lv/default.asp).  Listen for the ISS on the downlink 
of 145.80 MHz.

Currently the ARISS operations team has a list of over 40 schools that we 
hope will be able to have a contact during 2002.   As the schedule becomes 
more solidified, we will be letting everyone know.  Current plans call for an 
average of one scheduled school contact per week.
