Hello everyone,

Here is a bit of news which would be "border-line late" if we waited for the
weekend ANS news cycle:

Two opportunities, one over Europe, and one over the United States
to directly receive the ISS downlink on 145.800 MHz FM will occur
early next week:

+ Kantonsschule Zug, Zug, Switzerland, direct via HB9KSZ on Mon 
  2011-10-31 14:56:19 UTC 39 deg elevation.

+ Sundance Elementary School, San Diego, California, direct via 
  KI6ZUM on Tue 2011-11-01 20:00:45 UTC 42 deg elevation.

In a recent communication of Fiscal Year 2011 accomplishments to 
the NASA education community, NASA Associate Administrator for 
Education Leland Melvin highlighted the accomplishments of ARISS:

"10,743 curious students and 778 motivated educators participated 
in direct communication with International Space Station (ISS) 
crews via the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station 
(ARISS), sparking their interest in STEM."
