On Wednesday February 13th the scheduled contact is with participants at Chief Peguis Jr. High, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada AOS is scheduled for 19:47 UTC

The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and VK5ZAI in South Australia. The contact is expected to be conducted in English.

Radio amateurs in the footprint are asked to monitor the signals on the 145.80 downlink for signal strength as we are using the back up Erickson radio. 
 
Audio from this contact will be fed into the:
EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377) and *JK1ZRW* (277208) servers
IRLP Node 9010 Discovery Reflector
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 **
