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.

Nov 9 SSTV


Looks like the Russian SSTV experiment was able to be operated manually for some images in Martin 1 fomat to be transmitted while the ISS was in range of Moscow. Seems an interference issue is preventing the system from transmitting automatically.  Here are a couple of images that were received today.  The top right one is from  YO3FVR and the bottom left one is from PD0RKC. Other images received can be viewed at http://www.amsat.org/amsat/ariss/SSTV/index.php

Delayed start and additional info


Seems that the setup was delayed until Wednesday (Nov 7) but accomplished. Checkout passes are scheduled on Nov 8 and Nov 9 when the ISS is in range of Moscow. The pass times fall roughly between 08:00 and 11:00 UTC each day. The down link frequency will be 145.80 MHz for image transmission. It is likely that the images will be transmitted during the entire time indicated and be using the Martin 1 format.

SSTV Nov 6-8


Looks like the Russians are planning another SSTV experiment run during the first full week in November.
I see a prep activity on Nov 6 and several activations and checks on Nov 7-9. The checks coincide with pass times in range of Moscow so unsure if images will be coming down worldwide. The on and off times are for the early morning period (UTC) so it will not be a 24/7 operation.
