International Space Station ARISS school contacts have been planned with participants at Parkside Community College, Parkside, Cambridge, UK and The Girl's Middle School, Mountain View, CA on 30 March. The events are scheduled to begin at approximately 1700 UTC and 1822 UTC respectively.
The first contact will be a direct between OR4ISS and GB4FUN, the second is a telebridge between stations NA1SS and K6DUE. The contacts should be audible over Europe and then Eastern N. America. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. Audio from the telebridge contact should also be available via the AMSAT conference on EchoLink and via the 9010 Discovery reflector on IRLP. The participants are expected to conduct the conversation in English.
