Thank you for the info. Was able to catch the live stream on youtube, but
even more important was able to listen to most answers via direct audio on
my station ! Although it was only a 19 degree pass for me. Hope the next
school contact on the east coast will be a higher pass.

For locals by far the best option is to watch the event via the ATV repeater
downlink but setting up can be an issue.

So, the next best option is to view the Youtube Live Stream. This will
commence around 17:30 (local VK time) and continue until just after the
contact when we commence packing up.
This stream will be active well before 17:30 but there may not be any vision

Next option would be to watch the contact via BATC to make it easier I
suggest that people open up the VK3RTV web page and select "VK3RTV1"
this is a very low bandwidth feed so it is quite lossy. Ok to watch on a
small screen but if you expand it up then it will be quite pixelated.
