Davis Aerospace HS & ISS Contact Information

After a long time of planning, setup, testing, and coordination, we are finally ready for the contact between the students of the B. O. Davis Aerospace Technical High School in Detroit and the International Space Station.

The contact will happen on Tuesday, October 18, 2022 at around 1:30 PM EDT, and it will be streamed LIVE via the Detroit Public Schools Community District’s YouTube channel. There will be some presentations and other informational content happening before then, so please feel free to load up that link a bit earlier than 1:30 PM on Tuesday if you would like.

Due to space and security concerns, we ask that you please not attempt to visit the school where the contact is taking place – you can instead use the YouTube streaming link provided above.

Lastly, the standard ISS FM voice downlink frequency will be used for this contact. Tune your VHF radio(s) to 145.800 MHz and see if you can catch the astronaut’s responses! (You won’t hear the student’s questions on this frequency – again, you can use the YouTube link if you want to hear both the questions and the answers.)

This has been a long time coming, and we are very excited!
