Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with the Boy Space Jamboree,
Rantoul, IL, USA direct via WB9SA.

Contact is a go for: Sunday 8th August, 09:12 UTC.


*** This contact MAY BE CANCELLED due to a cooling pump failure on the ISS.
As I'm typing this the crew are in the process of swapping out the faulty
unit. Hopefully all will be well! ***


Audio from this contact will be fed into the EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377) and
*JK1ZRW* (277208) servers. Audio is generally transmitted around 15 minutes
prior to the contact taking place so that you can hear some of the
preparation that occurs.


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.


** 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
