- June 11: The ARISS-US Education Committee selected seven schools and groups who must now prepare and submit an ARISS Equipment Plan showing they can either support a direct radio contact or plan to host a telebridge radio contact. These ARISS radio contacts will take place between January and June 2019. An ARISS news release was composed and distributed about ARISS education proposals that were selected during Phase 1 of the proposal process.
- The ARISS team notified all schools and groups that submitted an education proposal as to whether or not they were selected. The team also set up dates and the process for registering for ARISS Orientation Webinars that representatives from the selected schools and groups must attend.
- June 1: The members of the Great South Bay Amateur Radio Club (GSBARC) of Long Island, NY are planning an entirely different Field Day exercise than in past years. Field Day is a US and Canadian event where amateur radio operators set up ham stations in remote areas to test and practice their emergency communications capabilities. The event is also a social activity and a PR opportunity; the public, the area’s emergency communications officials, and the media are invited to visit. GSBARC is also inviting all students from Central Islip School District who took part in an ARISS contact in April that GSBARC members supported. The ham club is taking the schools under its wing to mentor students in technology and communications through the next school year. At Field Day, students will get to talk on the air and see a demonstration of amateur satellite radio contacts. The club will set up break-out sessions to talk about the many unique things students can do in amateur radio.
- June 19: Students from Tehnička škola Zaječar in Zaječar, Serbia will have an ARISS radio contact with Ricky Arnold.
