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.
