Upcoming ARISS Contact Schedule as of 2002-09-20 03:00 UTC

Upcoming ARISS Contact Schedule as of 2002-09-20 03:00 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.

For information about educational materials available from ISS partner space 
Agencies, please refer to links on the ARISS Frequently Asked Questions page.

If you are interested in supporting an ARISS contact, then you must fill
in an application.  The ARISS operations mentor team will not accept a
direct request to support an ARISS contact.

You should also note that many schools think that they can request a
specific date and time.  It does not work that way.  Once an application
has been accepted, the ARISS mentors will work with the school to
determine a mutually agreeable date.

Websites that may be of interest include:


Your completely filled out application should be returned to the
nearest coordinating ARISS region if your specific region is not
listed.  E-mail is the preferred method of submitting an application.

Currently the ARISS operations team has a list of over 60 schools that we 
hope will be able to have a contact during 2002-2003.   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.
