Details of ARISS contact downlink for Sept 16

This message was sent to Andy yesterday.

Andy,

I thought you might be interested to know that our next
scheduled ARISS contact will be over your area, and you
should be able to copy the downlink on 145.80. It will
be with the New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, NM
(N5MMI) on Wednesday, September 16. The predicted times
for your location are

TIME (UTC) AZ/EL
AOS: 15:53:49 317/ 0
Peak: 15:59:14 47/79
LOS: 16:04:36 135/ 0

These times are about 3 minutes later than what you will
see from the current Space-Track elements because a
Service Module reboost burn is scheduled now for 9/14 at
01:12 UTC (2.2 m/sec delta V). My predicted post-burn
elements are

ISS (Sep14 post-burn)
1 25544U 98067A 15257.06856269 .00011976 00000-0 18766-3 0 178
2 25544 51.6440 0.2385 0005551 276.2379 83.8140 15.53837861 1879

Predicted times for the school are

TIME (UTC) AZ/EL
AOS: 15:51:41 319/ 0
Peak: 15:57:03 41/46
LOS: 16:02:22 122/ 0

So try to listen then, if you can. The astronaut making
this contact will be Kjell Lindgren (KO5MOS).
