ARISS Event *REMINDER* - Carman Park Elementary Wednesday (Dec 21) at 16:34 UTC

The next International Space Station's Expedition 12 ARISS school contact
will be with students at the Carman Park Elementary in Flint, Michigan, USA
on Wednesday, 21 December 2005. The event is scheduled to begin at
approximately 16:34 UTC.

This contact will be telebridged between stations NA1SS and WH6PN in Hawaii.
It should be audible to anyone in the Hawaiian Islands listening in on the
145.80 MHz downlink. Audio will also be provided via the following sources:

IRLP -  Connect to the IRLP reflector 9010.  
You may also connect via the IRLP Discovery website at

EchoLink - Please give the EDU_NET server your preference over the AMSAT
server for your connection. (This will keep the load light on the AMSAT
server, assuring us of better audio quality all around.)

NASA-TV is planning to air portions of the audio during their normal live
broadcast. This is available via the web at

The participants are expected to conduct the conversation in English.

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 after that event. Information about the next scheduled ARISS
contact can be found at http://www.rac.ca/ariss/upcoming.htm#NextContact.
Next planned event(s):
25th Asia Pacific Scout Jamboree 2005, Bangkok, Thailand, 2005-12-31  09:12

 ARISS is an international educational outreach program partnering the
participating space agencies, NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, CNES, JAXA,
and CSA, with the AMSAT and IARU organizations from participating countries.
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 see, first
hand, how Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS can energize youngsters'
interest in science, technology, and learning. Further information on the
ARISS program is available on the website http://www.rac.ca/ariss
(graciously hosted by the Radio Amateurs of Canada). 

Thank you & 73,
