ARISS Event - King's School in 1 week



The ARISS team is pleased to announce that school contacts 
have resumed, and the next school contact by International 
Space Station (ISS) astronauts is scheduled to take place 
Wednesday, January 28, 2004 at approximately 1742 UTC with 
students at King's School in Canterbury, United Kingdom.

The connection will be via amateur radio with the space 
station side of the contact possibly audible to listeners 
in the area of the United Kingdom on the ISS downlink frequency 145.80 
MHz.  The Space Station will be using the call NA1SS to 
contact the station GB4FUN.

The King's School, founded in 579 AD, is a co-ed boarding 
and day school for students 13-18 years of age. King's is 
closely following Mike Foale's time on the ISS.  For 
further information about the school, please look at

Further information about the contact will be provided 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 at 
the website http://www.rac.ca/ariss
