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.

SSTV in Oct - update

Looks like the installation of the equipment to support some SSTV operations from the Russians has been delayed. Currently they plan to install the hardware on October 12 and perform some tests. The system should be ready for use over the weekend of October 20-21 if all goes well.

Russian SSTV expriments in Oct 2012

I'm hearing that the Russians are planning to do some more SSTV experiments starting in Oct 2012. The main focus of the transmissions will be over Moscow but some periods (likely the weekends) will have global coverage. More details to follow once they become available.

Final Image?

This SSTV image acquired by JJ0LTH on Jan 04 at 02:56 UTC may be one of the last captured from ARISSAT-1. The last telemetry data was received on Wed, 04 Jan 2012 06:02:14 UTC (see ARISSat-1 live telemetry page ). Seems the satellite has de-orbited as no new reports have been posted recently.
