ARISS Event - *REMINDER* Albert the Great School, Wed (Jan 11) at 18:11 UTC

An International Space Station's Expedition 12 ARISS school contact has been
planned with students at Albert the Great School in North Royalton, Ohio,
USA, on Wednesday, 11 January 2006. The event is scheduled to begin at
approximately 18:11 UTC.

This contact will be direct between stations NA1SS and NA8SA, so it should
be audible to anyone in Eastern portions of N. America listening in on the
145.80 MHz downlink. 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):
Itaki Elementary School Fathers' Club (Oyajinokai), Japan, Thu 2006-01-19
07:49 Georgia Tech Institute of Technology - Aerospace  Engineering Dept,
Atlanta, GA, USA, Thu  2006-01-19 15:05 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,
