ARISS Event: Niebull Contact in 1 week

The next school contact by International Space Station (ISS) astronauts is scheduled to take place Friday, December 12, 2003 at
approximately 1400 UTC with students at Niebull, Germany's Berufliche Schule des Kreises Nordfriesland. The connection will be via
amateur radio with the space station side of the contact possibly audible to citizens of central Europe on the ISS downlink
frequency 145.80 MHz.

ARISS is an international educational outreach program with US participation from NASA, AMSAT (The Amateur Satellite Radio Corp.),
and the American Radio Relay League.  ARISS offers an opportunity for students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by
talking directly with crewmembers on-board the International Space Station. Teachers, parents and communities experience, first
hand, how Amateur Radio and crew members on ISS can energize youngsters interest in science, technology, and learning.  Further
information on the ARISS programme is available on the website http://www.rac.ca/ariss
