performance, electrical systems, navigation systems and aeronautical radio
communication. These are the basic subjects required by DAC (Departamento de
Aviação Civil ¬ Civil Aviation Department).

8. What is the procedure used to maintain the ISS altitude?  
9. What thing you miss the most during the time you are far from home?

Next planned event(s):
Peterson Elementary, Red  Springs, NC, USA Mon 2006-01-09 16:39 UTC

 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,
