03/30/2015

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) program coordinator is seeking proposals from schools and organizations that are interested in hosting an Amateur Radio contact with a member of the International Space Station crew. The US ARISS contact proposal window will remain open until April 15.

ARISS is seeking formal and informal educational institutions and organizations, individually or working together, to host an Amateur Radio contact with an ISS crew member between January 1 and June 30, 2016. Crew scheduling and space station orbits will determine the exact contact dates. ARISS is looking for organizations that have the potential to draw large numbers of participants and can integrate the contact into a well-developed educational plan.

Details on expectations, audience, proposal guidelines, and proposal form, and dates and times of information sessions are on the ARRL website. Contact ARISS with any questions.
