Total number of ARISS ISS to earth  school contacts is 522. 
Total number of ARISS supported terrestrial contacts  is  32.

Lately  there have been some comments on the various bulletin boards about 
having  general contacts or leaving the packet or crossband repeater on.  
Remember  that ARISS is a guest onboard the ISS and if the crew elects to not 
turn  something on or to operate, then that is their decision.  ARISS can 
only  suggest; never demand.   (***)
