The next International Space Station's Expedition 11 ARISS school contact will be with students at the Matthew J. Kuss Middle School in Fall River, Massachusetts, USA on Friday, 16 September 2005. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 18:27 UTC.
This contact will be direct between stations NA1SS and W1ACT, so it should be audible to anyone in the northeast United States and southern portions of Ontario and Quebec listening in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The participants are expected to conduct the conversation in English.
From Scott Avery, WA6LIE:
Who knows when the ISS digipeater will be in service again.I know everyone at ARISS is doing what they can to get it going.
In the meantime... how about PCSAT2?
It is a crossband digipeater.
145.825 Uplink and 435.275+- Doppler Downlink.
Most of us have dualband radios these days.
