ARISS - Contact Notification



Hello, and a (slightly late) Happy New Year to you from everyone involved
with ARISS! Thanks for being with us during the last year, and we are
already looking forward to many more contacts during 2010. Please do join us
whenever you can!

 

This week you can join us in listening to the ISS contact with the Marconi
Commemoration Event, University of Rome "Tor Vergata", Rome, Italy. This
will be a telebridge via W6SRJ. Contact is a go for:  Thu 2010-01-07
09:00:14 UTC

 

Audio from this contact will be fed into the IRLP 'Discovery' Reflector
(9010) and the EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377) and *JK1ZRW* (277208) servers.
IRLP and Echolink audio is generally transmitted around 15 minutes prior to
the contact taking place so that you can hear some of the preparation that
occurs.

 

Please note that on Echolink there are automatic breaks of 1.5 seconds in
the audio transmission. These occur every 2.5 minutes during the event.

 

For your information, when any ARISS event is supported through the IRLP
"Discovery" Reflector 9010, audio is also automatically streamed to the
Internet.

 

It is then available via the 'Discovery' Reflector's companion web site
www.discoveryreflector.ca . Once on its main page, select "Audio Library"
(left sidebar). The prompt to join the audio stream is posted at the top of
this page. You can access the URL directly at
www.discoveryreflector.ca:8000/listen.pls

 

The audio on the Internet can be delayed by anything up to two minutes.

 

** Contact times are approximate. If the ISS executes a reboost or other
manoeuvre, the AOS (Acquisition Of Signal) time may alter by a few minutes
**

 

73,

Graham
