ARISS Looking for Volunteers

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station program (ARISS) is looking for hams interested in volunteering as ground support crew members and technical mentors. According to the AMSAT News Service, ground support teams set up actual contacts between schools and other selected locations for contacts between students and astronauts aboard the International Space Station. Technical mentors serve as liaisons between NASA and the ground support teams.  More information is available online at <>. Hams interested in volunteering may e-mail <>.
