The WMAA ARISS contact was a complete success, thanks to the support of the local Amateur Radio community! Here are some links to local news coverage. Additional coverage, picture and audio will be added as it becomes available.
The ARISS contact did not occur on thursday 10/22 due to a scheduling conflict with the astronaut on the ISS, who was engaged in a EVA that extended through the scheduled contact time.
The contact has been rescheduled for Friday, 10/23 at 13:55 EDT
You can tune in on the W8LRC repeater or via Echolink and IRLP as described below.
The delay has allowed WMAA to set up an additional video steam for this event. You can see the live video at http://ustre.am/1rZV1
LARC is supporting the West Michigan Aviation Academy in their ARISS contact with the International Space Station.
