1. Upcoming School Contact
Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa, Canada has been scheduled for an Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) contact on Tuesday, January 20 at 18:01 UTC via telebridge station ON4ISS in Belgium. A space club has been formed at the hospital and those children participating in the club have learned about the ISS via videos, the internet and guest speakers. They have learned to use correct radio protocol and have tracked and plotted the course of the ISS. They have also created artwork to be displayed during the contact. Media coverage of the event is expected.
