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.

Dec 18 SSTV from ISS active

Starting to see reports of activity from ISS on Dec 18 around 14:00 UTC. This image from PY2IV was captured during a pass over Brazil.
Additionally, below is another image from F5ASD in France. Notice the series numbers in the upper right corner of the images. Each image is a celebration of the 80th anniversary of Gagarin's birth. Wonder if anyone will get all 12?

SSTV on Dec 18 and 20

The Russian ARISS team members plan to activate SSTV from the ISS on Dec 18 and 20. Expected mode will be PD180 on 145.800 MHz with 3 minute off periods between transmissions. A total of 12 different photos will be sent during the operational period. Start time  would be around 14:20 UTC on December 18 and 12:40 UTC on December 20. The transmissions should terminate around 21:30 UTC each day. Space-X 5 will be launching the same week and delays in the launch could adjust SSTV operational times.

Sept 6 activity

Getting reports of SSTV images being received on 145.80.  Apparently the Russians decided to give it another shot after having issues on the originally announced date. This image was posted to the Gallery by Fabiano Moser - CT7ABD at 09:10 UTC.

Aug 27 report

The SSTV transmissions occurred on schedule and even occurred well after the planned termination time of 13:00 UTC (after 17:00 UTC). The new cable appears to have solved the constant carrier issue but now the audio from the program is not being transmitted. The end result for the day was no images but several well timed carriers that lasted for 180 seconds.

Aug 27, 2014 SSTV

After a long hiatus due to hardware issues, the Russian team will try sending SSTV images on Aug 27 from 11:00-13:00 UTC using the Kenwood D710 and a new cable. The transmissions will be on 145.80 MHz and the intended mode is PD180. The interval between transmissions should be about 3 minutes. The images are being planned to be sent for one full orbit during this time period. Regions along the ground track include Europe, Central and Southeast Asia, Eastern Australia and New Zealand, Central South America and then Europe again.
