Several contacts will be available on Echolink and IRLP this week:

1) Maroochydore State School - Australia - 12 Septemner at 0703 UTC

2) Marcelino Canino Canino Middle School - 12 September at 1729 UTC

These will be telebridges by VK4KHZ and K6DUE respectively.

The DIRECT contact at Burns Sci-Tech Charter School in Florida, USA at 1821
UTC is supposed to be available on the web at:


If the audio quality is good I will relay it via the usual Echolink and
IRLP systems.

As a reminder audio from the contact will be fed into the:

EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377) and *JK1ZRW* (277208) servers

IRLP Node 9010 Discovery Reflector

Audio on Echolink 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

** 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
