Hi Everyone,
I will be in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada FN84 from May 18 to May 25.
After that I will be roving vacation style on Cape Breton Island, activating
grids FN95, FN96, FN97, GN05, GN06 holiday style from May 26 to June 3rd.
On Saturday June 1st I am planning to be at the FN95/FN96/GN05/GN06 corner
but I don't know the exact times yet.
I am also planning on activating FN97 for a few hours probably on May 31.
I will be active on FM and linear sats and will post passes on Twitter as
@????? with as much advance warning as possible.
Hoping to work EU and West Coast USA / Canada in particular.
I will be using the Canadian special event callsign CJ3IIR/1 on the air and
logging in LOTW as CJ3IIR/1.
I look forward to working you from Nova Scotia and hope to give you some new
grids.
Cheers,?
Ron, ad0dx / va3iir / cj3iir

International Space Station Astronauts are Calling CQ Students

ARISS-US program?s education proposal window is open April 1 - May 15, 2019

?

March 24, 2019:? The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station
(ARISS) program is seeking proposals beginning April 1, 2019, from US
schools, museums, science centers and community youth organizations (working
individually or together) to host radio contacts with an orbiting crew
member aboard the International Space Station (ISS) between January 1, 2020
and June 30, 2020.

?

Each year, ARISS provides tens of thousands of students with learning
opportunities about space technologies, communications, and much more
through the exploration of Amateur Radio and space. The ARISS program
connects students to astronauts on the ISS through a partnership between
NASA, the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation, the American Radio Relay
League, other Amateur Radio global organizations and the worldwide space
agencies. The program?s goal is to inspire students to pursue interests and
careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and in
Amateur Radio.

?

Educators report regularly that student participation in the ARISS program
stimulates interest in STEM subjects and STEM careers. One educator wrote,
?Many of the middle school students who took part in and attended the ARISS
contact have selected science courses in high school as a result of that
contact.?? Educators are setting up ham radio clubs in schools and learning
centers because of students? interest.

?

ARISS is looking for organizations that will draw large numbers of
participants and integrate the contact into a well-developed, exciting
education plan. Students can learn about satellite communications, wireless
technology, science research conducted on the ISS, radio science, and other
STEM subjects. Students learn to use Amateur Radio to talk directly to an
astronaut and ask their STEM-related questions. ARISS will help educational
organizations locate Amateur Radio groups who can assist with equipment for
a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for students.

?

The proposal window opens April 1, 2019 and the proposal deadline is May 15,
2019. For proposal guidelines and forms and more details, go to:
http://ariss-proposal-webinar-spring-2019.eventbrite.com

Proposal webinars for guidance and getting questions answered will be
offered April 11, 2019 at 7 pm Eastern Time and April 16, 2019 at 9 pm
Eastern Time. Advance registration is necessary. To sign up, go to
https://ariss-proposal-webinar-spring-2019.eventbrite.com

Aloha!

My High School Physics class will attempt to work AO-91 today. Here are the
details of the pass.

AOS- 20:49z
TCA - 20:52z  El 3.3 degrees
LOS - 20:55z

It's not a perfect pass, but it's the best I've seen in several weeks that
matches up with the class period.

If you can, please give us a listen!

                       Hamvention and ARISS Work Together





The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station team (ARISS) is pleased
to announce that it is working together again with Hamvention this year. 
Hamvention's 2019 theme is, "Mentoring the Next Generation."  ARISS's
mission is all about mentoring and inspiring. Tens of thousands of people
have been touched by the program: students, educators, community members,
and new hams--all wanting to explore STEM and Amateur Radio through ARISS.



Hamvention's support to ARISS began with approval for their first-ever ARISS
Forum; it is Friday at 1:15-2:15 PM in Room 3.  A group of speakers will
present current and future lifelong learning activities for hams and
students via ARISS SSTV, APRS, voice repeaters, radio experiments and
robots. Attendees will hear about the next gen on-orbit hardware systems,
updates on school activities, ARISS's visionary initiative to fly ham radio
on the human spaceflight lunar Gateway, how to maximize hams' opportunities
to make ARISS connections and listen to the ISS crew in home stations, and
meet special guests.



Hamvention will boost up ARISS by once again featuring a special
ticket-drawing just minutes before the convention's famous Sunday drawing
for bonus prizes. One ticket will be pulled from the drum for a lucky person
to win an ARISS display case with coins.  ARISS donated two ARISS Challenge
Coins positioned side by side, showcased in a handsome wooden case with a
brass plate. A challenge coin is the premium received by donors who give
$100 or more to ARISS; the case allows the view of each of the coin's sides.
 The winning ticket will be tossed in the drum for a chance at all other
prizes.  2019 Hamvention Prize Committee Chair Liz Clinc,  KE8FMJ, wrote,



"I will give you [ARISS] the same spot [at Sunday's prize event] as in
previous years.  As a collector of challenge coins, myself, I think this is
a fabulous thing you do."



The ARISS team welcomes Hamvention-goers at the ARISS booth in Building 1. 
A version will be featured of the Multi-Voltage Power Supply (MVPS) that
ARISS will launch to replace the current aging ISS amateur radio station. 
ARISS hopes to boost its 2019 fund-raising campaign to help with the
expensive space-rated parts required to finish building the MVPS units, and
some costs of continuing ARISS operations. When Hamvention visitors donate
$10, they will receive a new ARISS lapel pin and a chance in a raffle to win
an ARISS Challenge Coin--the winning ticket to be drawn at the booth, 10:30
AM Sunday; the winner need not be present.



For those unable to travel to Xenia, readers can donate any amount right now
by going to http://www.ariss.org/donate.html   And surprise??-if you donate
after May 16 on FundRazr.com, an anonymous benefactor will match your amount
dollar for dollar, for which ARISS is very grateful.  The match ends July
17, 2019.



ARISS thanked everyone on the Hamvention staff whose efforts are aiding
ARISS in its publicity and fund-raising goals.  ARRL ARISS-US Delegate
Rosalie White, K1STO, added: "We are so pleased and proud to know that
Hamvention believes in the ARISS team and its goals of inspiring and
mentoring STEM and Amateur Radio."



About ARISS

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative
venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that
support the International Space Station (ISS).  In the United States,
sponsors are the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT), the American
Radio Relay League (ARRL), the ISS National Lab and National Aeronautics and
Space Administration (NASA). The primary goal of ARISS is to promote
exploration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)
topics by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew

Evidently we chose the FO-29 "CQ frequency," Bob.  Had the CW ditter and two
SSB stations calling CQ over our QSO.  Can't

Hi Brad,

   your set-up is do-able.  I'm putting together a K3NG rotator
controller for my own station, but it may not be needed to start with,
only the southern part of passes would be of interest.  I'm curious
what the rotator model is.  I'm using a Ham IV that I re-built myself,
using aviation lubricants, its been colder than -40 and even then it
worked flawlessly.  Going from pictures of Cambridge Bay, there doesn't
appear to be any issues with terrain so a short mast should do.

   I use an 8 el quad on 2M and a helix antenna, left over from AO-10,
AO-13 days, on 70 cm.  The quad's beamwidth is narrow and if the
antennae track most satellites they're workable to about 2 degrees
above the horizon without a pre-amp and 10W (less coax losses) on
transmit.

   Its a good time to work on the shopping list, as she has nothing the
list will include everything :-)  I wonder what 6 metres is like up
there, she is well north of the auroral oval.

Hi John,

Doggone! I heard you on this pass, didn't see your email until this
evening. Heard some other operators on the pass comment that they got
Hawaii! I was focused on getting KI7UTJ from DM01/02. Hope you and your
class got a good number of QSOs. Would love to try it again.

International Space Station Astronauts are Calling CQ Students

ARISS-US program?s education proposal window is open April 1 - May 15, 2019

?

March 24, 2019:? The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station
(ARISS) program is seeking proposals beginning April 1, 2019, from US
schools, museums, science centers and community youth organizations (working
individually or together) to host radio contacts with an orbiting crew
member aboard the International Space Station (ISS) between January 1, 2020
and June 30, 2020.

?

Each year, ARISS provides tens of thousands of students with learning
opportunities about space technologies, communications, and much more
through the exploration of Amateur Radio and space. The ARISS program
connects students to astronauts on the ISS through a partnership between
NASA, the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation, the American Radio Relay
League, other Amateur Radio global organizations and the worldwide space
agencies. The program?s goal is to inspire students to pursue interests and
careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and in
Amateur Radio.

?

Educators report regularly that student participation in the ARISS program
stimulates interest in STEM subjects and STEM careers. One educator wrote,
?Many of the middle school students who took part in and attended the ARISS
contact have selected science courses in high school as a result of that
contact.?? Educators are setting up ham radio clubs in schools and learning
centers because of students? interest.

?

ARISS is looking for organizations that will draw large numbers of
participants and integrate the contact into a well-developed, exciting
education plan. Students can learn about satellite communications, wireless
technology, science research conducted on the ISS, radio science, and other
STEM subjects. Students learn to use Amateur Radio to talk directly to an
astronaut and ask their STEM-related questions. ARISS will help educational
organizations locate Amateur Radio groups who can assist with equipment for
a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for students.

?

The proposal window opens April 1, 2019 and the proposal deadline is May 15,
2019. For proposal guidelines and forms and more details, go to:
http://ariss-proposal-webinar-spring-2019.eventbrite.com

Proposal webinars for guidance and getting questions answered will be
offered April 11, 2019 at 7 pm Eastern Time and April 16, 2019 at 9 pm
Eastern Time. Advance registration is necessary. To sign up, go to
https://ariss-proposal-webinar-spring-2019.eventbrite.com
