Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with participants at the
Southern Tier Catholic and Archbishop Walsh Academy, Olean, NY, USA on
Tuesday October 30th. Acquisition of Signal (AOS) is scheduled for 16:16 UTC

The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The
contact will be a telebridge between OR4ISS and IK1SLD in Italy. The
contact is expected to be conducted in English.

STCS originally opened in 1923 as St. Mary's Academic School next to St.
Mary of the Angels parish and has remained open continuously since then. In
1998 St. Mary's School was renamed Southern Tier Catholic School when it
became a regional school serving all of the Catholic parishes from Cuba to
Salamanca to Ellicottville. STCS is now the only remaining Catholic
elementary school in the Southern Tier of western New York between
Wellsville to the east and Jamestown to the west.

Audio from this contact will be fed into 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 & 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 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 **
