Welcome to Burlington-Edison

 Tuesday, October 13, 2015
Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is coming to Bay View. Countdown to contact:
  • Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with participants at the Bay View Elementary School, Burlington, Washington, USA on Wednesday October 14. Aqusition of Signal (AOS) is anticipated at 19:41 UTC (12:41 PDT)
    The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The contact will be a telebridge between OR4ISS and IK1SLD in Italy. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is expected to be conducted in English.

    Streaming audio of the Bay View ARISS contact will be available from ARRISSAUDIO

    Check back later for a video link to the event

    Note: Audio on Echolink & web stream is generally transmitted around 20 minutes prior to the contact taking place so that you can hear some of the preparation that occurs. IRLP will begin just prior to the ground station call to the ISS.
    Please note that due to control issues on Echolink there are manual breaks approximately every 3 minutes. Connected repeaters may time out.  Breaks on IRLP are manual and occur approximately after every third question.
    ** Contact times are approximate. If the ISS executes a reboost or other manoeuvre, the AOS (Acquisition Of Signal) time may alter by a few minutes **
