An International Space Station school contact has been planned for Ricky Arnold KE5DAU with Tehnicka Skola Zajecar, Zajecar, Serbia.
The event is scheduled Tuesday 19 June 2018 at approximately 14.20 UTC.
The contact will be a direct operated by YU1ACR.
The downlink signals will be audible in parts of Europe.
Technical school from Zajecar is a secondary vocational school in Eastern Serbia. The school includes educational profiles in the fields of electrical engineering, transport, mechanical engineering and information technology. For years, the school has been involved in various reform projects secondary vocational education, which resulted in the introduction of new experimental educational profiles mechatronics and information technologies.
An important segment in the school is non-formal education and work in the sections. In the field of robotics, our students record excellent results at national competitions. In 2017, the school launched a state-level “ARDUINO KUP” competition where students displayed their skills in the field of microcontrollers. The competition was organized in 2018, and we hope that the competition will soon take on an international character.
Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:
1. Do you play any sport on the ISS?

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that support the International Space Station: NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, JAXA, and CSA. The US Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) provide ARISS special support.
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.
The primary goal of ARISS is to promote exploration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew members aboard the ISS and students in classrooms or informal education venues. With the help of experienced amateur radio volunteers, ISS crews speak directly with large audiences in a variety of public forums. Before and during these radio contacts, students, teachers, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies, and amateur radio.
