As part of my zillion other duties as an ARISS mentor, I post ARISS
announcements to the SAREX-BB. Oftentimes Dave AA4KN (another ARISS mentor) will
post an announcement for each specific school a few days before the actual
contact that has a little more information about the school itself to the
AMSAT-BB and SAREX-BB.
We do not have an ARISS only type of list.
As part of my announcements I do indicate where one can find the complete
schedule. You can go to:
http://www.amsat.org/amsat/ariss/news/arissnews.rtf This one has all of
the schools that are presently in our schedule queue.
http://www.ariss.org/upcoming-contacts.html This one has the schools that
have actually received their contact date and time.
http://www.issfanclub.com/ The ISS fan club always is user updated
As always, ARISS suggests that you start listening about 10 minutes before
the indicated time.

Thanks so much for the heads up. Does ARISS have an email list I can
sign up for to be notified of these events? I got a really good
reception here in the Triangle of North Carolina, specifically in
Durham where I work. check it out:
