Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with participants at the Warren Consolidated Schools, Warren, Michigan, USA on Friday, March 14th. Aqusition of Signal (AOS) is anticipated at 11:24 UTC.
The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The contact will be a DIRECT between NA1SS and W8HP at the school. The contact is expected to be conducted in English.
The mission of the Warren Consolidated Schools (WCS) district, in partnership with families and community, is to achieve a level of excellence in teaching and learning which enables all students to become knowledgeable, productive, ethical, and successful citizens. To help meet that goal, WCS supports programs in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), which give students a real hands-on experience in education.
Audio from this contact will be fed into the:
EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377)
IRLP Node 9010 Discovery Reflector
The school will stream the contact live to USTREAM at:
Audio on Echolink will commence about 20 minutes prior to the contact taking place so that you can hear some of the preparation that occurs. IRLP will begin just prior to the ground station call to the ISS.
Please note that on Echolink there are automatic breaks of 1.5 seconds in the audio transmission. These occur every 2.5 minutes during the event.
Breaks on IRLP are manual and occur approximately after every third question.
* Contact times are approximate. If the ISS executes a reboost or other manoeuvre, the AOS (Acquisition Of Signal) time may alter by a few  minutes
