• SSTV Transmissions Scheduled from ISS

    From ARRL de WD1CKS@VERT/WLARB to QST on Monday, August 02, 2021 17:52:51

    Friday and Saturday, August 6 - 7, Russian cosmonauts onboard the International Space Station (ISS) will transmit slow-scan television (SSTV) images from the station on 145.800 MHz FM. They will use SSTV mode PD-120. The transmissions are part of the Moscow Aviation Institute SSTV experiment (MAI-75) and will be sent via RS0ISS, the ham station in the Russian Zvezda (Service) module using a Kenwood TM-D710 transceiver.

    The announced schedule is August 6, 1050 - 1910 UTC and August 7, 0950 - 1555 UTC. Dates and times are subject to change. For stations in the ISS footprint, the RS0ISS signal should be easy to copy on a handheld transceiver and a quarter-wave whip. Use 25-kHz channel spacing, if available. Free ISS software is available to download.

    Pass predictions[1] are available from AMSAT. Representative images from prior ISS SSTV events are available in the ARISS SSTV Gallery[2].
