Ericsson radio is going to be used for these contacts.  ARISS thanks everyone 
in advance for  their assistance.

minute changes or  cancellations.

webpages were removed and new ones have been added.  If there are additional

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 window for contacts during the second half of 2012 has already  closed.  
Look for the window for  first half 2013 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, Delaware, Kansas,  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.
