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 
does not change its clocks for daylight  time in the summer. It's UTC -7 
for local time, all the time. We  really don't need the extra hour of 
when it is so hot in the  deserts during the summer.

Looking forward to this video presentation,  and to hear the ISS as it 
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.
