Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with participants at the
Mt. Ousley Public School, Fairy Meadow, NSW, Australia on Tuesday March
13th. AOS scheduled to begin at approximately 07:35 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 should be audible over portions of Europe. Interested parties are
invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is expected to
be conducted in English.
Mt Ousley (ooze-ly) Public School is a government school in coastal
Wollongong, New South Wales about 100km south of Sydney. We have 185
students aged 5-12yrs and have 12 teachers. We enjoy learning experiences
that connect us with the world and use technology to help us communicate
and follow the crew on Facebook and Twitter.
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
manoeuvre, the AOS (Acquisition Of Signal) time may alter by a few minutes
