Ny är det äntligen dags för Räddningsgymnasiet i Sandö att köra sin ARISS-kontakt. Enligt Håkan SM7WSJ kommer passagen vara hörbar i delar av Sverige. Kontakten kommer även att streamas på internet, vi återkommer med adress.
Nedan är information från ARISS:
An International Space Station ARISS contact has been planned for astronaut Paolo Nespoli IZ0JPA with Tallaght Community School, Dublin, Ireland
and Gymnasium Räddningsgymnasiet Sando, Sandöverken, Sweden.
The event is scheduled Thursday October 19, 2017 at approximately 12.49 UTC, which is 14.49 CEST.
This direct radio contact will be operated by EI1ISS.
The signals will be relayed from Ireland to Sweden by telebridge.
Downlink signals will be audible in parts of Europe on 145.800 MHz narrowband FM.
Tallaght Community School is located in Dublin city in Ireland. The school was chosen for the event as it is in a disadvantaged area and the school
works hard to prepare and encourage students to pursue some form of further education. The school has 900 students aged 12 to 18 years and all
will take part in the event. All students have studied about the ISS and were given an opportunity to submit questions to be selected.
Sandö is located about 400 Km to the North of Stockholm. The participating schools are Räddningsgymnasiet Sandö, Minerva school Ånge and the NTI
Gymnasium Sundsvall. Together they count 550 students ranging from ages 12 to 19. Sandö Räddningsgymnasium is close to nature and overlooks a beautiful
fjord. Besides teaching science programs, the gymnasium offers courses in civil crisis management, firefighting as well as search and rescue. Students
are prepared for a career as teachers, nurses, psychologist, firemen, fire engineers and policemen. Together with the Folke Bernadotte academy
as well as other governmental organisations, they create an understanding of and a preparedness for international assignments. Part of the education
is that the students travel around the world to learn from existing fire and rescue situations. Amateur Radio is also included in the student’s
The NTI Gymnasium Sundsvall or the Northern Technical institute, established 1968 offers courses in digital techniques, internet technology and
other forms of digital communication. The institute has about 250 students. Minerva school Ånge teaches younger students from age 12 to 15 and
has of about 200 students enrolled.

ARISS is an international educational outreach program partnering the volunteer support and leadership from AMSAT and IARU societies around the
world with the ISS space agencies partners: NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, JAXA, and CSA.
ARISS offers an opportunity for students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with crewmembers on board the International
Space Station. Teachers, parents and communities see, first hand, how Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS can energize youngsters’ interest in
science, technology, and learning.
