ARISS contact you can SEE and HEAR tomorrow!!
- There is an ARISS (Amateur Radio on the ISS) school contact scheduled at Parkside Elem. School in Atlanta, GA at 11:42 EST (16:42UTC) tomorrow morning. This is a telebridge contact and that means the K6DUE ham station in Greenbelt, MD will be relaying communication between the school and the ISS as it passes overhead. Since the ISS will be very close to passing directly over us too, you can tune into 145.800 MHz FM and listen in. You should be able to hear the ISS very easily for about 7 to 9 minutes as Astronaut Don Pettit answers questions for the students. You'll only hear the astronauts side of the Q & A session. If the signal is a little scratchy, try tuning up or down 2 or 3 KHz since the Doppler freq. shift could be the problem. The signal should be pretty strong.
The best part is that the school has arranged to stream the video, so if you go to www.livestream.com/parksideariss, you can connect to the video and watch the students as they have the time of their lives.
