Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with participants at the
Atlanta Science Festival, Atlanta, Georgia on Tuesday March 8th.
AOS is anticipated at 1611 UTC
The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The
contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and K6DUE in Greenbelt,
The contact is expected to be conducted in English.
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.
Please note that on Echolink there are automatic breaks of 1.5 seconds in
the audio transmission. These occur every 2.5 minutes during the event.
Breaks on IRLP are manual and occur approximately after every third
question. 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
