Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with participants at the

Norwich Schools, Norwich/East Anglia, UK, on Friday February 26th.

AOS is anticipated at 1443 UTC

The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The
contact will be DIRECT between NA1SS and GB2CNS

The contact is expected to be conducted in English.

You can watch the contact at:  https://principia.ariss.org/Live/

Their stream starts about an hour or so prior to contact

HAMTV from ISS is anticipated

Audio from this contact will be fed into the:

EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377)

IRLP Node 9010 Discovery Reflector

Streaming Audio at: https://sites.google.com/site/arissaudio/

Audio on Echolink & web stream is generally transmitted around 20 minutes
prior to the contact taking place so that you can hear some of the
preparation that occurs. IRLP will begin just prior to the ground station
call to the ISS. Audio for this contact is a relay from the principia
website and is dependent on their stream.

Times breaks are manual and connected repeaters may time out.

** Contact times are approximate. If the ISS executes a reboost or other
manoeuvre, the AOS (Acquisition Of Signal) time may alter by a few minutes
