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.

Aug 04 report

Even less activity today. Seems the DATA connector on the Kenwood D700 is not getting a good connection to the VC-H1 system. That appears to be the cause of the unmodulated carrier and intermittent transmissions seen from the ISS. The experiment is scheduled to be turned off at 1410 GMT today.

A couple of images were caputure over Europe about 1330 UTC. This one is from G8OQW

AUG 03 report

Seems that some initial images did come down for about the first hour after the system was first enabled but then the system was only keying down at the proper intervals (once every 3 minutes) and no audio was being relayed.
Later in the day, the carrier switched to 145.825 and then about 1555 UTC, a partial image was transmitted. Reports after that seem to indicate the crew powered the system down as scheduled.
Congrats to those that were fortunate enough to copy imagery and we will hope the operation will have better success tomorrow.

Thanks to CR7/PY5RX for this image.
