ARISS Notice -- ISS Radios off Next Week

Kenneth Ransom, N5VHO, reports that the amateur radio 
equipment aboard the International Space Station will be 
turned off during the upcoming EVA.  The planned shut down 
will take place at 0850 UTC on Monday, August 2.  The 
radios should return to service approximately 0850 UTC on 
Wednesday, August 4.

As always, these dates and times are subject to change 
with circumstances.  We will do our best to notify the 
SAREX list of any changes as soon as possible.

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 crewmembers 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

Thank you & 73,
