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
livestream.com/fps. 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.
LIMARC is the sponsoring club for a contact today between Freeport H.S. and the ISS. You can watch it live stream starting somewhere around 12:40. The actual contact with the ISS will start at 1:41.
