The ARISS schedule is updated quite often. I do post an announcement to
the SAREX BB of the updated schedule.
You can always go to http://www.amsat.org/amsat/ariss/news/arissnews.rtf
for the complete schedule.
The Boy Scouts will be having an ARISS telebridge contact via VK6MJ in
Australia. Below is an excerpt from what I have already posted.
National Scouting Museum, Irving, TX, telebridge via VK6MJ
Contact is a go for: Sat 2012-10-20 18:32:30 UTC 66 deg
As far as JOTA goes for general contacts, we tell the crew about the
weekend but we cannot demand that they participate. So if you hear them on and
can work them, go for it. Happy hunting! Just realize that any general
contact as well as the scheduled ARISS contacts take place during a
crewmember's off time. So if you can work the ISS, please thank them for taking
time during their off time.

Besides HF, I hope to be able include some satellite contacts this
weekend for the Boy Scouts Jamboree on the Air (JOTA). I would love to
hear from others who will attempt some satellite contacts for JOTA. I am
just beginning to figure out what passes and satellites will work on
Saturday, October 20. I will be operating from Galveston State Park in
Also, does anyone have info on when the ISS will be in contact with the
Boy Scouts in Irving, TX this weekend? I understand they have a
schedule set up and perhaps we can give a listen. Perhaps on the next
pass or so, they will consider a contact with others.
