CEPES,Jodoigne,Belgium & Mimar SinanÖzel Okulları,İstanbul,Turkey

Wednesday 1 April AOS is anticipated at approximately 0920 UTC.

The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The
contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and K6DUE in Greenbelt, Maryland
 The contact should be audible over the east coast of the U.S. Interested
parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is
expected to be conducted in English and French.

Cepes is situated in Jodoigne, a city in the French speaking region of
Belgium. It is  a secundary school gathering 810 students. The students
participating to the ARISS project specialize in Sciences, Mathematics,
Languages and Human Sciences. They are 15 -20 years old.

Mimar Sinan College is situated in Istanbul, Turkey. The students  prepared
the questions after they learned about the ISS during science lessons.They also
watched videos of astronauts working in the ISS.

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.

*Please note that due to server control issues on Echolink* there will
be *manual
breaks* of 1.5 seconds in the audio transmission these occur every 2.5
minutes during the event there is a possibility repeater connections may
time out. Breaks on IRLP are manual and occur approximately after every
third question.

** 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
