Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with participants at the El
Dorado County Office of Education, Placerville, CA on 24 Jan. The event is
scheduled to begin at approximately 18:12 UTC.

The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds.
The contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and W6SRJ. The contact
should be audible over the west coast of the U.S. 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

Audio on Echolink 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
maneuver, the AOS (Acquisition Of Signal) time may alter by a few minutes
