Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with participants at the Australian Air League - South Australia Wing, Elizabeth, South Australia, Australia tomorrow Friday, February 21.
Acqusition of Signal (AOS) is anticipated at 08:36 UTC (2:36AM CST)

The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and AH6NM in Hawaii, and is expected to be conducted in English.

Audio from this contact will be fed into the:
EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377)
IRLP Node 9010 Discovery Reflector
Streaming Audio at the following Link

Audio on Echolink & web stream is generally transmitted around 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
