Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with participants at the
Corpus Christi Catholic School, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, USA

Acquisition of Signal (AOS) is anticipated to be 16:29:32 UTC

The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The
contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and LU1CGB in Argentina. The
contact is expected to be conducted in English.

Audio from this contact will be fed into the:

EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377)

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 due to control issues with Echolink and IRLP there are
manual breaks approximately every 2 minutes to prevent timeout of connected
repeaters and links. You may still time out depending on your local

** Contact times are approximate. If the ISS executes a re-boost or other
maneuver, the AOS (Acquisition of Signal) time may alter by a few minutes **
