10 April contact to school in Pinson AL - USA !

10 APRIL an ISS contact to school contact has been planned with participants at Pinson Valley HS, Pinson, AL USA.

The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 18:02 UTC

The contact will be direct between NA1SS and KN4BBD

KN4BBD is the Pinson Valley High School that has been selected by the ARISS (Amateur Radio on the International Space Station) U.S. program to move to the scheduling phase toward participating in a scheduled Amateur Radio contact with the International Space Station (ISS) in 2018.

The contact should be audible over the state of Alabama and adjacent areas


At 145.80 MHz downlink. ( ONLY RX !!!! )

The contact is expected to be conducted in English.

Pinson Valley High School is located in Central Alabama near the city of Birmingham and is one of 57 schools in the Jefferson County School system. We are a very diverse school with approximately 1100 students in grades 9-12. At PVHS students have many options for academic programs and extracurricular involvement. We have opportunities for students to take Advanced Placement or Dual Enrollment classes, a growing career technical education academy, and a very popular fine arts academy. We hope that our participation in the ARISS contact will build an increased interest in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) course pathways. There are many sport teams for both male and female athletes. On December 8, 2017 our football team won the Alabama 6A State Championship, a first for our school. Our motto is “At Pinson Valley High School we promote achievement, respect, and success.” Go Indians!
