Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with participants at the

W.T. Sampson  (DoD school),Guantanamo Bay, Cuba,  on Wednesday February
11th.  Aqusition of Signal is anticipated at 15:58 UTC

The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The
contact will be a telebridge between IR0ISS and IK1SLD in Italy. The
contact is expected to be conducted in English.

WT Sampson Unit School is a K-12 DoDDS (Department of Defense Dependents
Schools) school located in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.  Our school provides
education opportunities for GTMO’s students from Sure Start through 12th
grade.  Our students are primarily the children of military and civilian
families stationed here at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Audio from this contact will be fed into the:

EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377)

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.

Due to control issues with the echolink server, breaks will be done
manually and mute functions will not be operation so please do not key up
during the event.

** 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
