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 April 14 and 15

Details are a bit sketchy at this point but it appears that the Moscow Aviation Institute will be conduction SSTV image transmissions from ISS on April 14 from around 15:00 to 18:00 UTC and again on April 15 from around 14:00 to 19:00. It appears they will be using the large image quality transmission mode of PD290 during this period. Folks will have to be extremely lucky to capture a full image during a pass of the ISS since the transmission time for each image will be nearly 5 minutes and there should be a gap between image transmissions to reduce the duty cycle on the radio. Transmissions are planned to occur on 145.800 MHz.

*** Update (April 14)
Getting reports that PD180 is being used for MAI-75 as well. This could be to not changing the mode from the previous event or a change in operational planning. Will have to wait and see if the mode stays the same or changes.
