Watch  for the official announcements for when schools will be able to send 
in  proposals for an ARISS contact.  The window will be open from 
2015-09-01 to  2015-11-01. These proposals will be for school contacts during the 
second half  of 2016.  

>From  2015-12-20 to 2016-01-04, there will be no US Operational Segment 
hams  on board ISS.  So any schools contacts during this period will be 
conducted  by the ARISS Russia  team.

ARISS  is always glad to receive listener reports for the above contacts.   
ARISS thanks everyone in advance for their assistance.  Feel free to  send 
your reports to aj9n at amsat.org or aj9n at aol.com.   

Several  of you have sent me emails asking about the RAC ARISS website and 
not being  able to get in.  That has now been changed to  

Note that there are links to other ARISS  websites from this  site.

Looking  for something new to do?  How about receiving DATV from the  ISS?  
If interested, then please go to the ARISS-EU website for  complete 
details.  Look for the buttons indicating Ham  Video.
