An International Space Station school contact has been planned with participants at SÃ¤traskolan, SkÃ¤rholmen, Sweden on 06 Sep. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 19:25 UTC. The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and LU8YY. The contact should be audible over portions of the South America. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is expected to be conducted in Swedish.
SÃ¤traskolan is located in SkÃ¤rholmen in the Southern part of Stockholm.
The school has children from preschool to 9th grade with about 550 students and 100 employees. For the past year, the school has been engulfed in a real space fever. For the upcoming event, more than 1000 questions where submitted. This says quite a lot about the level of motivation from students and teachers alike. This is also reflected in the slogan selected for the event: "SÃ¤traskolan; skolan som siktar hÃ¶gre" (SÃ¤traskolan; the school which aims higher).
yesterday I recorded some audio on 145.800 MHz,
I am in Victoria and the ISS was over WA/NT, so it is a bit scratchy and fades in and out a bit.
I don't know how to clean up audio files,
so, the original wave file is online.
