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

Hi,

A colleague at work is in town from India this week and I am helping him
get into ham radio. I told him I would try to do a little demo for him
tomorrow if possible. The best pass for me would be the one in $subject,
but it's out over the Atlantic ocean, and with it being an AM week day pass
I am not sure anyone will even be on.

I need to see if he is available then, but if so, will anyone be on or can
someone be on so I can have a successful demo for him?

Message-ID: <2653901C754E4AB3AEB3AB09330B4D80@???>
Content-Type: text/plain;	charset="iso-8859-1"







An International Space Station school contact has been planned with
participants at Aranzadi Ikastola, Bergara, Spain on 17 May. The event is
scheduled to begin at approximately 08:51 UTC. It is recommended that you
start listening approximately 10 minutes before this time.The duration of
the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The contact will be a
telebridge between NA1SS and VK6MJ. The contact should be audible over
portions of Australia and adjacent areas. Interested parties are invited to
listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is expected to be
conducted in English.





Bergara, with its 15000 inhabitants, is in the Basque Country, an autonomous
community of Spain. It has been very important in Science throughout
history, since the chemical element Wolfram was first isolated in a
laboratory here, in 1783.  Also, until the end of the XXth century, Bergara
has been the most important producer on fabric, including jeans such as
Levis or Lee. Our school is here.



Aranzadi School is formed by 452 families, 746 students and 69
professionals, with the collaboration of other people.  Families can start
being part of our school when the child is four months old and they can
continue being members until the student finishes secondary school or high
school.



The school was set up by some parents of our town, in the year 1971 because
they wanted a school that would be Basque and innovative. We are a
cooperative whose access is public. We have followed that attitude for 47
years.

Our school has been pioneer in the use of languages: it was the first school
teaching English to 4 years old children. Pioneer in many things, we are
working really hard for our school to be one of the best.





Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:



1. Were you scared when you travelled to the Space Station? How long is it?

2. Do you dream when you sleep?

3. Do watches work in the same way in the space and in the Earth?

4. What is, in your opinion, the most complicated task of an astronaut?

5. Do you think the Earth will be as beautiful in the future?

6. How do you know when you have to have lunch, or dinner or go to sleep?

7. How do you feel when you leave the Space Station in order to make

   reparations or to go for a walk?

8. Is the space the way you imagined it as a child?

9. What do you feel when you drink water? How do you drink it?

10. What do you feel when you wake up and you see the Earth so far away?

11. Do you think that maybe one day humans will live on the Moon or in Mars?

12. Is cosmic radiation disturbing when your eyes are closed?

13. What games do you play when you are there?

14. When you look from the Spacial Station, what colour is the Earth?

15. What do you feel when you are in the space?

16. What do you miss when you are in space?

17. Is the food you eat tasty? How is it like?

18. What do you do when you are sick? Do you take something special?

19. What did you feel the first time without gravity?

20. Was it difficult to get used to sleeping hanging?

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). ARISS in the US is funded in
part by 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
members aboard the ISS and students in classrooms or informal education

speak directly with large audiences in a variety of public forums.  Before
and during these radio contacts, students, teachers, parents, and

John,

Unfortunately I just read this post after having arrived at work (drove the
Miata today, no room for Elk), so can't help you.   However I will say that
on the early Atlantic passes on weekdays, there are usually a least 2 or 3
ops every time.   I don't think you'll have any problem making contacts.

I put it on my calendar and I happen to have my gear with me. I'll try to
jump on.

I made a decent number of QSOs. Thanks folks.

Here is a picture of my colleague Yogesh after the demo:

As I say in the Tweet, he wants to have an ARISS contact for some students
he teaches after he learns enough about ham radio.
