Next ISS School Contact

The date of the next ISS school contact has been confirmed by NASA.

On Saturday, 5 March, students from Powys Combined Schools will get their chance to speak to Tim Peake as he flies overhead.

The pass is around 10.55 in the morning.

Amateurs all over northern Europe will be able to listen to the downlink live on 145.800MHz.

A 2m handheld radio outdoors is adequate to hear much of his transmission, using only a rubber duck antenna.
