Introduction

This site will be the focal point for some of the best SSTV images received during Oct 2008 and beyond. Images will be downlinked by ISS on 145.800 MHz. To view some of the received images transmitted from the ISS check out the following Gallery Website . You may also submit images at that website as well.



In addition to SSTV image receptions, reports of planned amateur radio activity using SSTV will be provided.

MAI-75 in December

Looks like the MAI-75 folks have scheduled some SSTV activity during specific periods each day from Dec 6-8. The times correlate to a small number of passes each day in range of Moscow.

Dec 6, 2017
Setup and power on –  13:40-14:20 UTC
Power off – 17:05-17:15 UTC

Dec 7, 2017
Power on –  13:45-13:55 UTC
Power off – 17:30-17:40 UTC

Dec 8, 2017
Power on –  14:05-14:15 UTC
Power off and stow – 17:00-17:10 UTC


**UPDATE - Nov 28**
Seems the system will be put through some extended testing from Dec 5 starting around 15:00 UTC and running until 09:00 UTC on Dec 6. Test images will be used during this period. This will provide near global coverage if all works well. The MAI-75 schedule remains unchanged at this point.

**UPDATE Dec 5**
Looks like they had to do some rescheduling related to changes in the Cygnus release. Below is the new schedule:

Dec 6, 2017
Test Setup and activation –  15:25-16:25UTC

Dec 7, 2017
Test Power off – 08:10-08:20 UTC
Power on –  13:40-13:50 UTC
Power off – 17:30-17:40 UTC

Dec 8, 2017
Power on –  14:05-14:15 UTC
Power off and stow – 17:45-17:55UTC


**UPDATE - Dec. 6**
Transmissions in PD120 being reported by ground stations. Reports of computerized voice also reported. This is likely from a program running on the same computer and outputting audio to the headphone port that SSTV is also using. There appears to be 12 images in the series but images on 1-6 are the same as the ones on set from 7-12.
