Slow Scan Television (SSTV) images transmitted from the International Space Station and other ARISS supported satellites
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.
ARISS is currently seeking donations to help finalize development and certification of hardware to replace the current systems on the ISS.
ARISS is in critical need of an infrastructure update to ensure that programs like students talking to astronauts in space via amateur radio can continue. Through your donations ARISS seeks the following upgrades:
Next Generation radio system will support easier radio mode transition, to enable new, exciting capabilities for hams, students and the general public including:
New amateur radio communication and experimentation capabilities, including an enhanced voice repeater and updated digital packet radio (APRS) capabilities
Slow Scan TV (picture up and downlinks) in both the US and Russian segments of ISS
New multi-voltage power supply will support present and future radio capabilities and allow wireless experiments to be conducted
ARISS needs to build 10 Next Generation Radio Systems to support our development, on-orbit operations, training and long-term maintenance. This includes units on-orbit (2 units--1 unit each in US and Russian segment), flight spares (2 units), training (3 units), testing (1 unit) and ground-based maintenance & troubleshooting (2 units)
Donations are fully tax deductible within the USA as AMSAT is a 501(c)(3) organization.
