Good Morning

K4AMG Memorial Amateur Radio Club is working with Great Bridge HS in 
Chesapeake, VA for an ISS contact.  Our mentor for this contact is KN4KL.

Our equipment is available for use by other schools in the local area; 
however, weather our mentor is available is not certain.

Call  for Proposals
Proposal Window September 1 – November 1, 2016

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS)  Program is
seeking formal and informal education institutions and organizations,
individually or working together, to host an Amateur Radio contact with a 
member on board the ISS.  ARISS anticipates that the contact would be held
between July 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017. Crew scheduling and ISS orbits 
determine the exact contact dates. To maximize these radio contact
opportunities, ARISS is looking for organizations that will draw large 
numbers  of
participants and integrate the contact into a well-developed education

The deadline to submit a proposal is November 1, 2016.   Proposal
information and documents can be found at 

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.

Listen for the ISS on  the downlink of 145.8Ø  MHz.


All  ARISS contacts are made via the Ericsson radio unless otherwise  noted.


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

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.


If you need some  assistance, ARISS mentor Kerry N6IZW, might be able to
provide some  insight.  Contact Kerry at  kbanke at sbcglobal.net
