Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with South Hobart Primary
School, South Hobart, Tasmania, Australia on Friday 27th August at 06:43
UTC. This will be a telebridge and the Ground Station will be K6DUE.

 

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.

 

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.

 

For your information, when any ARISS event is supported through the IRLP
"Discovery" Reflector 9010, audio is also automatically streamed to the
Internet.

 

It is then available via the 'Discovery' Reflector's companion web site
www.discoveryreflector.ca . Once on its main page, select "Audio Library"
(left sidebar). The prompt to join the audio stream is posted at the top of
this page. You can access the URL directly at
www.discoveryreflector.ca:8000/listen.pls

 

The audio on the Internet can be delayed by anything up to two minutes.

 

** 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
**

 

73,

Graham
