Please join us in listening to An International Space Station school
contact with Salem Elementary School in Apex, North Carolina on Wednesday,
March 21 at 14:09 UTC via ground station VK5ZAI in Australia. This contact
is part of a comprehensive education plan which will pique students’
interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

 Audio from this contact will be available on the:

EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377) and *JK1ZRW* (277208) servers

IRLP Node 9010 Discovery Reflector

Streaming audio at: https://sites.google.com/site/arissaudio/

Audio on Echolink & Webstream 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 **
