ARISS reception opportunity over US east coast Thursday morning

A school in Sweden is talking to the International Space Station through a telebridge station in Maryland at 11:12:55 UTC on Thursday March 15th. That’s 7:12am EDT so many people might be able to hear it on their morning commute. They will be using the Kenwood TM-D710E which puts out 50 watts, much more than the Ericsson handheld they have used in the past, which is only 5 watts. It should be relatively easy to hear. The frequency is 145.800 MHz FM and the contact will last about 10 minutes.
