The next International Space Station's Expedition 12 ARISS school contact will be with students at the Mt Carmel High School in San Diego, California, USA on Thursday, 15 December 2005. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 15:42 UTC.
I had my 1st QSO with Bill on 12-10-05 at 1520 UTC.He said it was nice hearing fron Alabama and reported my signal as 5/9,which is amazing.I was operating the Kenwood TR-751A (25 watts maxium output) feeding 50 feet of RG 213 cable to a 20 foot elevation J-Pole Antenna! Excellent contact from the HOME TO ARMY AVIATION (FORT RUCKER-A U.S.A Army Heliocopter training base)Daleville, Alabama! Hopeful since Bill is GO ARMY my QSO made his day in a little way, it really made my weekend.
