Mike Fossum talks to students at Donald P. Sutherland School in Nassau, NY on 11/10/11

Mike Fossum talks to school students on 11/10/11 from 19:34UTC to 19:42UTC. Some fading in-and-out at the beginning and end, but I left the full recording intact so you can hear everything I received. Heard on my scanner with a 1/4 wave mobile antenna, recorded with a digital recorder. 145.800 MHz. Not a very high pass for my location in eastern PA but I got what I could.

ISS Contacts Audio - FN42nm - JOTA, October 15, 2011, 7:38PM ET Pass

I use a small digital recorder to record my attempts to make contact with the ISS. This is the compressed version that does not have me shouting out my cries for a contact. If you made contact during that pass you may find your call in there! Enjoy!
