Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with Scuola primaria De
Gasperi, Noicattaro,  I-70016. Italy, direct via IZ7EVR

Contact is a go for: Tue 2010-04-06  10:47:42


Audio from this contact will be fed into the IRLP 'Discovery' Reflector
(9010) and the EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377) and *JK1ZRW* (277208) servers.
IRLP and Echolink audio is generally transmitted around 15 minutes prior to
the contact taking place so that you can hear some of the preparation that
occurs. There is also a webcast available at http://it.justin.tv/cittadella


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.
