ARISS Event: Gilmour Academy Contact in 1 week

The next school contact by International Space Station (ISS) astronauts is scheduled to take place Friday, January 2, 2004 at
approximately 1400 UTC with students at the Gilmour Academy in Gates Mills, Ohio, USA. The connection will be direct via amateur
radio with the space station side of the contact possibly audible to citizens of the United States and Canada near the Ohio region.
The ISS downlink frequency is 145.80 MHz.

Gilmour Academy is a two-division private school with a Catholic tradition.  Gilmour is located in the Village of Gates Mills, which
is 25 miles east of the center of Metropolitan Cleveland, Ohio.  The lower school is Montessori through 6th grade, and the upper
school is 7th through 12th grades.  The Academy has an amateur radio station, ND8GA, which is located in the upper school where our
enrollment (Grades 7-12) is approximately 400 students.

Further information about the contact will be posted as it becomes available.

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
