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

*Bay View Elementary School, Burlington, Washington, USA* on Wednesday
October 14. Aqusition of Signal (AOS) is anticipated at 19:41 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. Interested
parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is
expected to be conducted in English.

Bay View School in Burlington, Washington has been serving kindergarten
through eighth grade students in the Burlington-Edison School District for
22 years. Named after the small community of Bayview, which was later
incorporated by the town of Burlington, it serves mainly in-district
neighborhood students.  This year 562 students are enrolled. The town of
Burlington is 66 miles north of Seattle, Washington. Located at the
intersection of two major highways, Burlington serves as a retail and
commercial hub for the region.  Industry is mainly agricultural, retail,
and commercial.

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 control issues on Echolink there are manual breaks
approximately every 3 minutes. Connected repeaters 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
