A slight correction... 10am in Arizona is 1700 UTC. Arizona, except for the
portion of the Navajo Nation reservation in the northeastern part of the state,
does not change its clocks for daylight time in the summer. It's UTC -7 hours
for local time, all the time. We really don't need the extra hour of daylight,
when it is so hot in the deserts during the summer.

Looking forward to this video presentation, and to hear the ISS as it passes
over. W7LB is the ground station for this contact, and Larry Brown is a
long-time AMSAT member and supporter. He has had a hand in other
scheduled ISS contacts in Arizona, and his experience should help make
this a success.
