*** Collegamento in via di ridefinizione***
Per il 7 Ottobre 2020 ore 14:15 (16:15 ora italiana) è programmato un collegamento ARISS con la McConnell Middle School, Loganville, GA.
Il collegamento avverrà in modalità multi-point telebridge
via ON4ISS. Multi-point telebridge significa che ogni studente sarà in teleconferenza da casa propria e parteciperà al collegamento con la propria linea telefonica: una sfida di grande complessità che integra radio e Voip.
Il callsign per la ISS sarà OR4ISS, l’astronauta al microfono sarà Chris Cassidy KF5KDR. Potremo ricevere il segnale dalla ISS ed ascoltare le risposte dell’astronauta sui 437.525 MHz FM, e ricordiamo sempre: solo RX! Le scuole aspettano questo momento da mesi ed ogni interferenza è da evitare. Aspettiamo i vostri rapporti di ricezione!
