Re: South Park Students Speak with ISS

I had my scanner set to 145.800Mhz and was able to hear most of the pass 
from Long Island New York.
There is audio from my QTH here:  http://www.w2lie.net/download.php?view.372

I will be streaming the downlink audio for the School Contact for 
Hampton Bays School in Hampton Bays NY.   That location is at most an 
hour from here so I am hoping to catch the entire pass.  The audio will 
be archived, and I hope to also archive the Echolink audio for that pass 
as well and add it to my site.

> On Tuesday, February 17, an Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) contact took place between South Park Elementary Center in South Park, Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh native Mike Fincke, KE5AIT, on the ISS.  Telebridge station K6DUE in Maryland facilitated the contact.  An audience of approximately 460 watched as twenty questions were asked and answered.  The audio was fed into the EchoLink AMSAT and JK1ZRW servers and received 7 connections from stations in England and the U.S.   The event received extensive media coverage from television stations and newspapers.
