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 crew  
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 will 
 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  www.arrl.org/hosting-an-ariss-contact.

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
