An International Space Station radio contact has been planned for astronaut Shane Kimbrough KE5HOD with Istituto Comprensivo “Marco da Melo”, Mel, Italy. The event is scheduled Friday November 4 2016 at  approximately 08:47 UTC.
This will be a direct radio contact, operated by IQ3FL.
The downlink signal will be audible in parts of Europe on 145.800 MHz narrowband FM.

Presentation:

Our school is a state school and is meant for students aged 6 to 14 years old. It has about 250 students. Its name "Marco da Melo" comes from a historic character (a painter) of the 16th century. The school is situated in a wide valley, Val Belluna (the valley of Belluno). All the subjects included in the national regulations for this age bracket are taught: Italian, History, Geography, Science, Math, foreign languages, Art, Music and IT. Some technological workshops have been started up for three years and only for the students of the last school year with the help of the radio amateurs of the local section of Feltre. Themes related to telecommunication are dealt with and experiments of electrophysics are carried out as well as CW tests. Footage and slides related to the world of the radio are shown.

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, CNES, 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.
