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.

Thank you & 73,
