ARISS Contact Schedule and Successful school  list updated 2005-08-13 15:00 

Well done STS-114!  Welcome  back!

Due to the STS-114 operation and planned ISS EVAs, ARISS  school contacts 
were canceled or postponed.  We are back; the next contact  is set for 2005-08-17.

There was also a rumor that the ISS was  having contacts on the 40 meter 
band.  There is no HF equipment available  yet.

Expedition 11 crew is now on the ISS.

Expedition 12 crew is  expected to dock 2005-10-03.  This means that there 
will probably not be  any ARISS contacts from the week before docking until the 
week of  2005-10-24.
