ARISS Contact SUNDAY 22 JULY



Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with participants at the

ESA Space Camp, being held at St. Columba’s College, Whitechurch, Dublin,
Ireland

AOS is approximately 17:25 UTC SUNDAY 22 July and is a telebridge via W6SRJ
in Santa Rosa, California

The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds.  The
contact should be audible over the West / Midwest United States.
 Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink.
The contact is expected to be conducted in English.

The ARISS contact is part of an educational program of which some
activities are based around André Kuipers’ mission, Spaceship Earth.
Children at the camp will have 2 weeks of space education covering the
themes of Climate, Biodiversity and the Human Body as well as Earth
Observation and the Solar System. The children will also receive lessons
about how to communicate with the crew on the ISS from a ham radio expert.

Audio from this contact will be fed into the:

IRLP Node 9010 Discovery Reflector

EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377) and *JK1ZRW* (277208) servers
 Streaming Audio at:  https://sites.google.com/site/arissaudio/

Audio on Echolink & web stream is generally transmitted around 20 minutes
prior to the contact taking place so that you can hear some of the
preparation that occurs. IRLP will begin just prior to the ground station
call to the ISS.

 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.
Breaks on IRLP are manual and occur approximately after every third
question.

** 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
**
