US  Hams, don’t forget that there is a new process for US school  
proposals.  For US schools to have  an ARISS contact, they must fill out a proposal, 
submit it to NASA, and see if  they are approved or not.  Once a  school is 
approved and put on the list, an ARISS mentor will be assigned to  assist 
the school.    
NASA will have two open windows a  year for schools to submit a proposal.  
The first window for contacts during the first half of 2012 has already  
closed.  Look for the second window  for second half 2012 contacts later this 
year.  You must go through NASA to get the  proposal material.  Contact 
Teaching From Space, a NASA Education office, at JSC-TFS-ARISS@mail.nasa.gov or 
by calling them at (281)  244-2320. 
The following US states and entities have never had an ARISS  contact: 
Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware,  Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota,  North Dakota, 
Rhode  Island, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia,  Wyoming, American  
Samoa, Guam, Northern  Marianas Islands, and the Virgin  Islands.

There have  been rumors in the past indicating that the ISS was having 
direct  contacts  on the 40 meter band.  There is no HF radio equipment on  
board 
and available yet.  The HF antenna is mounted.   Sometimes WA3NAN will 
retransmit  shuttle audio.
