In-Person ARISS International Meeting Set for Houston
This year's in-person meeting of the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) coordinating committee is scheduled to be held in the Houston, Texas, area in mid-November, right after the AMSAT Space Symposium, being held this year on a cruise ship sailing from Galveston. This is the 20th anniversary meeting of the ARISS group, the first also held in Houston in 1996. ARISS coordinates scheduled amateur radio contacts between astronauts/cosmonauts on the International Space Station and school/youth groups around the world.
