The schedule of upcoming ARISS contacts is posted regularly on this
list and in AMSAT News Service weekly bulletins. It is also available
at https://www.ariss.org/upcoming-contacts.html The occasional SSTV
events are generally also announced in these sources.

Beyond scheduled contacts, casual operations by astronauts are at
their discretion and subject to their off hours. There is no published
schedule for these.

When not being used for voice contacts, the ISS station is frequently
in APRS packet digipeater mode. More information on that is at

During dockings, EVAs, and other special operations aboard the ISS the
amateur station is turned off. Such occasions may occur at any time
and are often not announced in advance.
