Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with participants at the
MarcelinoCaninoCanino Middle School, Dorado, Puerto Rico, on Tuesday September 4th. AOS is approximately 1417 UTC.
The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and K6DUE in Greenbelt, Maryland, USA. The contact should be audible over the east coast of the U.S. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is expected to be conducted in English.
Marcelino Canino Canino Middle School is located in a rural area in the town of Dorado in the northern coast of Puerto Rico. Our student body is made up of 464 students out of which approximately 78% live under the poverty level. 100% of our students receive Title I services and over 100 (26%) receive special education services. We have 35 teachers and there are usually 3 teaching assistants assigned to the school. For the past seven years I have implemented in the school a Microsatellite Hardware Student Program where students design, construct, build and launch their microsatellites which are them tracked and recovered with the help of my colleagues amateur radio operators. Besides this I have a NASA Explorer School Program since 2005 and other science oriented educational proposals in our school to help motivate our largely underprivileged population to become competitive professionals in the global economy. This coming school year we will share facilities with the local high which is why our schedule is from 7:00 am to noon and then it becomes the high school.
Audio from this contact will be fed into the:
EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377) and *JK1ZRW* (277208) servers
IRLP Node 9010 Discovery Reflector Streaming Audio at: https://sites.google.com/site/arissaudio/
Audio on Echolink & web stream is generally transmitted around 20 minutes prior to the contact taking place so that you can hear some of the preparation that occurs. IRLP will begin just prior to the ground station call to the ISS.
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. Breaks on IRLP are manual and occur approximately after every third question.
** 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 **
