      STRONAUT MIKE FINCKE WILL CALL HAM STATION AT ESOC, SATURDAY
      SEPTEMBER 18, 2004

      Saturday, September 18 2004, the European Space Operations Centre
      (ESOC) in Darmstadt is setting up "The long
      night of the stars", a big event in which 160 institutions and
      organisations in Germany, Switzerland and
      Austria will participate and which is expected to draw tens of
      thousands of visitors.

      At Darmstadt on that day, the Operations Centre is going to be open
      for visitors, there will be public lectures
      and telescopes to view the night sky, as well as guided tours of the
      facilities, explaining the ESA spacecraft
      missions. They expect 3000 visitors. Public interest is very large,
      but they can only let 3000 people onto the
      premises for security reasons.

      In the evening, NASA astronaut Mike Fincke, KE5AIT onboard the
      International Space Station will perform an
      ARISS QSO with DL0ESA, the ESOC amateur radio club station. The
      radio contact will be relayed by the ESOC PR
      service for the benefit of the audience and the media.

      The QSO is scheduled to start at 1854 UTC, which is 20:54 local time
      (CET).

      Ham stations in Europe are invited to listen on the downlink
      frequency 145.800 MHz FM.
