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.

July 15 orbit


Here is a new Earth view image caputured by 9W6ZUL. Seems some old and new images are in the folder being transmitted. Images were received during the entire orbit today but some reports of constant carrier between images were also reported.

July 15 - first pass over Moscow

First SSTV images received (on 145.800) just before 13:00 UTC today as the ISS passed over Europe. Images have been reported over Asia as well so it appears the system is in auto mode for the entire orbit. Images were the same as transmitted about 2 months ago. Unknown at this time if any new images have been added to the rotation.

MAI-75 activation planned for July 15-16 (updated)

An activity to support SSTV activation (MAI-75) has been schedule on July 15 and 16. Times fall between 12:00-15:00 UTC on the 15th and 10:00-12:00 UTC on the 16th . The system will be operating space cam in slide show mode and is expected to use the Martin 1 format. The times are just over 1 orbit each day (two passes over Moscow) so opportunities will be very limited.

Good Luck to all.
