This is the second time ARISS has posted the announcment that the School
contact WILL take place on October  10th this year. Perhaps like NASA, they
also have a "year end" issue with their computer. :-)

Also, there is no explanation in the FAQs about what a "Telebridge" is. I
assume it is some internet link, in which case one wonders if it really has
anything to do with amateur radio. We certainly won't be able to "listen in"
on 145.800 as I have done in the past - shame.
