ARISS Final Notice -- Manordale Public School, Ottawa, Ontario on Thursday

The next ARISS contact by Expedition 10 aboard the International Space
Station will be with students at Manordale Public School, Ottawa,
Ontario, Canada on Thursday, 9 December.  The event is scheduled to
begin at approximately 17:17 UTC.  This contact will be direct between
stations NA1SS and VE3KID using English.  It should be audible to
anyone in the area listening in on the 145.80 MHz downlink.

"Manordale Public School is located in the heart of the City of
Ottawa - the nation's capital.  The school hosts a student body of 375
students from JK to grade 6.  Most recently, Manordale was recognized
in the Guinness World Book of Records for making snow angels
simultaneously with six other schools within the Ottawa-Carleton School
District.    Astronauts are encouraged to look closely during the
winter months to see if any snow angels are in sight."

Please note, the amateur equipment on the ISS will be turned off prior
to the beginning of the contact. It will be returned to service as
quickly 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
