Interested  in hosting an ARISS contact?  The window is now open from 
2015-09-01 to  2015-11-01. These proposals will be for school contacts during the 
second half  of 2016.  Go to http://www.arrl.org/hosting-an-ariss-contact 
or  http://www.ariss.org/apply-to-host-an-ariss-contact.html for full  
details.

To help organizations in preparing their proposals, the  ARISS Program 
Coordinator will offer hour-long online information sessions.  These are 
designed to provide more information regarding US ARISS contacts and  the proposal 
process and offer an opportunity to ask questions. While attending  an 
online information session is not required, it is strongly  encouraged.
These will be offered Thursday, September 17, at 2000 UTC;  Tuesday, 
September 22, at 2000 UTC, and Wednesday, September 30, at 2300 UTC.  Advance 
registration is necessary.  Email ARISS (ariss at arrl.org) to sign up  for an 
information  session.

****************************************************************************

>From  2015-12-20 to 2016-01-04, there will be no US Operational Segment 
(USOS)
hams  on board ISS.  So any schools contacts during this period will be 
conducted  by the ARISS Russia  team.

****************************************************************************
ARISS  is always glad to receive listener reports for the above contacts.   
ARISS thanks everyone in advance for their assistance.  Feel free to  send 
your reports to aj9n at amsat.org or aj9n at aol.com.   

****************************************************************************
Several  of you have sent me emails asking about the RAC ARISS website and 
not being  able to get in.  That has now been changed to  
http://www.ariss.org/

Note that there are links to other ARISS  websites from this  site.

****************************************************************************
Looking  for something new to do?  How about receiving DATV from the  ISS?  
 
If interested, then please go to the ARISS-EU website for  complete 
details.  Look for the buttons indicating Ham  Video.
