*****************************************************************************

The ARISS (a joint effort of AMSAT, the ARRL, NASA, the ARISS international

partners including Canada, Russia, the European Partners, and Japan) operations

team wishes to announce the following very tentative schedule for ARISS school

contacts. This schedule is very fluid and may change at the last minute.

Remember that amateur radio use on the ISS is considered secondary. Please

check the various AMSAT and ARISS webpages for the latest announcements.

Changes from the last announcement are noted with (***). Also, please check

MSNBC.com for possible live retransmissions

(http://www.msnbc.com/m/lv/default.asp). Listen for the ISS on the downlink of

145.8Ø MHz.
The crossband repeater has been active at times.

The frequencies are uplink of 437.8Ø MHz and downlink of 145.8Ø MHz.


For information about educational materials available from ISS partner space

Agencies, please refer to links on the ARISS Frequently Asked Questions page.


If you are interested in supporting an ARISS contact, then you must fill

in an application. The ARISS operations mentor team will not accept a

direct request to support an ARISS contact; the application must first be sent

to the ARISS region coordinator.


You should also note that many schools think that they can request a

specific date and time. Once an application has been accepted the ARISS mentors will work with the school to determine a mutually agreeable date.


There are several ARISS web sites:
English: http://www.ariss.org/ Note this is the new site location.

This site also has links to many other ARISS sites:

http://www.ariss.org/other-ariss-websites.html
ARISS France: http://ariss.fr.free.fr/
ARISS Europe: http://www.ariss-eu.org/
ARISS Japan: http://www.jarl.or.jp/ariss/

Your completely filled out application should be returned to the

nearest coordinating ARISS region if your specific region is not

listed. E-mail is the preferred method of submitting an application.


Here are the email addresses:

ARISS-Canada and all other countries not covered: fs882@ncf.ca (Maurice-André Vigneault VA2MA/VE3VIG)

ARISS-Europe: school.selection.manager@amsat.it (Francesco De Paolis, IK0WGF)

To let you in on how tough it is to schedule contacts, here are some of the constraints the ARISS mentors must work under:

Each Increment is 26 weeks in length.


For any given expedition, we typically may not schedule:

1. Anything the first 3 weeks.

2. During EVA weeks

3. At least 2 weeks prior to the Increment change.

4. No contacts during meal and exercise periods.

5. No contacts during post-sleep and pre sleep (before Ø8:ØØ UTC and after 19:3Ø UTC)

6. Contacts on the day of Progress docking or undocking are circumspect.

Mike Fincke KE5AIT and Gennady Padalka RN3DT produced a video during their stay on Expedition 9. You can get the QuickTime version (209MB) or the Windows Media version (152MB). These files are huge, so only a broadband connection is recommended. Thanks Mike and Gennady!

Proposed questions generated by the AstroNuts Kids Space Club Academy students:


1. Astronaut Tim, when you look out the windows of the cupola, on the ISS,  at our beautiful earth, it so peaceful but there are so many wars and disagreements going on here…how does that affect the workings of your peaceful multinational space station?

2. How did your time as an aquanaut prepare you for space flight and could any aspects of the training have been improved on?

3. Who was your biggest inspiration and why?

4. How did you feel when NASA told you that you might go blind or have difficulty seeing for the next couple of years or even permanently?.

5. I know that space missions have brought us many great inventions in the past (such as wireless blow dryers) but are there any new inventions your mission hopes to bring us over the next few months?

6. How did it feel to be the first astronaut to wear the British flag on a spacewalk?

7. What do you prefer: Earth or Space and why?

8. What is the hardest difference from living on earth and living in space that you've had to adjust to while living on the ISS?

9. With the satellites in space, do you get any cable service and watch t.v. in space?

10. What did you do to train to land on an asteroid?

11. What was the turning point in your life where you decided, that this career was the one and only destiny for you?

Currently the ARISS operations team has a list of 60 schools that we

hope will be able to have a contact during 2016. As the schedule becomes more solidified, we will be letting everyone know. Current plans call for an average of one scheduled school contact per week.
