If you are considering submitting a proposal for an Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) contact, this session will provide an overview from developing the application to the day of contact. This session will give detailed information about the application process, connecting with a local "ham" radio group, creating a school amateur radio club, building the contact antenna, communicating with the media, selecting students to ask your astronaut questions, discuss the Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) Teacher Institute, to final preparations for the day of contact.
