An International Space Station Expedition 18 ARISS school contact has been planned with participants at St. Thomas' Primary School, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia on 04 November. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 1015 UTC.
The contact will be a direct contact between stations NA1SS and VK4HBK. The contact should be audible over eastern Australia. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The participants are expected to conduct the conversation in English.
Several displays are planned for the library on the school ARISS project. These displays will have information on the NASA space program, Amateur Radio and ARISS. They will also have a link to the school ARISS Project web site, NASA and the current location of the International Space Station. We also plan an interactive section where children can listen to past ARISS school contacts.
