ARISS Scheduling Update

An urgent EVA to repair a broken power module on the ISS was performed on 2019-10-18. This work has caused the ARISS schedule to be moved back and is currently in flux. At this time the LARG ARISS team doesn’t know when the new window will be. Although based on orbital predictions it should be in the morning between 9a and 12p.

Setup is still targeted for the week of 2019-10-21.

LARG/ARISS/LCPS/FSMS – Test Setup v2

Steve (KS1G), Paulson (KG4TIH), Dave D, and Parker met early in the morning of Saturday, Oct 5th to setup all of the radio and A/V gear for the Farmwell Middle School Amateur Radio International Space Station contact occurring during the last week of October.

The setup shown below is a full radio, antenna, audio (radio operation, question students, and video computer), video, and streaming system.


Steve KS1G’s primary and backup radios plus a headphone amp (it’s total overkill) for him to control his headset monitor levels.
Main mixer, UPS, and a monitor for the streaming PC.
