ARISS - Amateur Radio on the International Space Station



Amateur radio is used to connect students in schools around the globe with astronauts aboard the international Space Station (ISS). Shaftesbury High School is currently fundraising for the construction of a permanent ARISS telebridge station to be operated by Shaftesbury students. These students must be certified radio amateurs. They will call up the astronauts aboard the space station when it is overhead Manitoba and travelling at a speed of about 27500 km/h. To make the contact, the directional antennas of our satellite tracking station will follow the ISS across the sky under precise computer control. The Shaftesbury ARISS Telebridge Service (SATS) will link a distant school to the ISS using a phone patch and the radios and antennas of the satellite tracking station. 



The Shaftesbury's ARISS telebridge station will be operational by 2014 and it will be the only permanent ARISS telebridge station in Canada.


Specific details on ARISS contacts can be found here.
