Thanks for the signal reports for today's contact with Central Square
Middle School. Here is what I do know at the moment:
The contact scheduled for 14:05 UTC only had about 3 questions get answered
and the contact was cut short.
A second attempt was then made at 15:40 UTC and it is my understanding that
it failed. Sorry I was not able to get the word out for the second
attempt but as I was just about to do that I had a work related call that took
precedent and lasted for about 45 minutes.
It is my understanding that many of you heard the ISS quite loudly, so that
is good to know for us as we determine what happened.
Thanks again to all for their reports.

The ground station had a problem making it to the ISS. The ISS called the
ground multiple times. The astronaut could barely hear them. He said he
was catching a few words and their signal was weak. By the time everything
was ok, they had 2 minutes for the contact. From my location, the astronaut
only had time to answer 3 questions.
I recorded the pass. The ISS was very strong.
