ARISS Contact and Freeport Public Schools 3/27/18

Today Freeport High School hosted an ARISS program including a very nice
exchange between students and the ISS.  It was livestreamed for about 2
hours and 27 minutes.  The program can be re-played at The last hour is of most interest.

Our vice president, Craig Ross, spoke representing amateur radio and LIMARC.

Of the few ARISS contacts that I have seen, I think this was the best
prepared and executed.
