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

*Albert Park College, Albert Park, Victoria, Australia* on Monday July

Acquisition of signal is anticipated at approximately 0840 UTC.

The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The
contact will be a telebridge between RS0ISS and W6SRJ in California. The
contact should be audible over the west 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.

Albert Park College is located in one of Melbourne's most prestigious
locations. Nestled in the heart of Albert Park the school offers state of
the art facilities designed and developed by award winning architects Woods

Cutting edge architecture, combined with highly motivated staff ensure that
we deliver high quality educational outcomes to the families of the City of
Port Phillip.

Families of the new Albert Park College have high expectations and we are
driven by our commitment to deliver the best possible outcomes for the
students in our community.

Audio from this contact will be fed into the:

EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377) server

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 breaks of 1.5 seconds in the audio
transmission. These occur every 2.5 minutes during the event. Breaks on
IRLP occur approximately after every third question. Breaks are done
manually, connected repeaters may time-out.

** 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
