Please join us in listening to an International Space Station school
contact planned with participants at St George’s International School,
Luxembourg on 08 Oct. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately
10:47 UTC. The contact will be telebridge between NA1SS and W6SRJ. The
contact should be audible over portions of the western U.S. and adjacent
areas. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz
downlink. The contact is expected to be conducted in English.

Audio from this contact will be fed into the:

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

IRLP Node 9010 Discovery Reflector Streaming Audio at:

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

** 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
