International Space Station Astronauts are Calling CQ ARISS Students

??? ARISS-US program?s education proposal window open Oct. 1 - Nov. 30, 2018

?

September 25, 2018:? ARISS is seeking proposals beginning October 1, 2018
from US schools, museums, science centers and community youth organizations
(working individually or together) to host amateur radio contacts with an
orbiting crew member aboard the International Space Station (ISS) between
July 1 and December 30, 2019.

?

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. ARISS has been pleased
of late, to be one of many possibilities of interest to educators during
NASA?s A Year of Education on Station, which celebrates an almost 12-month
presence of a teacher aboard the ISS.? 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 October 1, 2018 and the proposal deadline is
November 30, 2018.

For proposal guidelines and forms and more details, visit:
http://www.ariss.org/hosting-an-ariss-contact-in-the-us.html

?

Proposal webinars for guidance and getting questions answered will be
offered October 11 and October 23, 2018, both at 8 pm Eastern Time. Advance
registration is necessary. To sign up, go to:
ariss-proposal-webinar-fall-2018.eventbrite.com/

HI,

As we migrate the FUNcube data warehouse, we have made small change to the
new warehouse at

http://data.amsat-uk.org

The FC1 mission link is now pointing back to original site.

You can still access the new one directly at
http://data.amsat-uk.org/ui/fc1-fm

To all those uploading data to the new site THANK YOU, it aids testing
greatly.

Okay, I'm probably going to ruffle some feathers here, but when is
Funcube finally coming out with a dashboard that can run on Linux? It's
2018 and there is not a single reason nor obstacle not to write and
publish cross-platform software. This and the fact that the Funcube
documentation still states "Not yet" after the question: "Does this
software work on Linux and Mac OS systems?"

be sure to have a speaker or headphone connected to the computer's

Im getting back in to satellite after about 6 years being off.  My ts-2000
used to work great but when i have tried it this time, every satellite is
very weak and almost cants hear anything.   To troubleshoot if it was my
antenna system, i placed a new FT-991A on the antennas.  I hear the
satellites pretty well.   im using satpc32.  but the ft991a is a halfduplex
radio and i can not hear my own signal.  This means i cant calibrate it to
the correct frequencies.   I know people are using the ft991a.   Does
anyone have a way to calibrate the uplink or downlink using the satpc32?

antennas are 14 element 2 meter and a 11 element 70 cm antenna on az/el
rotor and about 100 ft of the new messi low loss superflex cable.

Thanks, Tom Medlin W5KUB
