An International Space Station school contact has been planned with
participants at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School,
Hay, NSW, Australia, Friday June 1st. AOS is approximately 10:44 UTC.

The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds.
The contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and VK6MJ. The contact
should be
audible over western Australia. Interested parties are invited to
listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is expected to be
in English.
Audio from this contact will be fed into the:

 IRLP Node 9010 Discovery Reflector by the N9XH Ground Station

(101377) and *JK1ZRW* (277208) servers

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 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

manoeuvre, the AOS (Acquisition Of Signal) time may alter by a few minutes
