MAI-75 SSTV activity planned for Aug 4 and 5, 2020


The final crew schedule for the week of Aug 3-9 was released recently and it showed a MAI-75 activity scheduled for Aug 4 and 5. This is soon after the Space X Demo-2 undock so changes to that event could impact the schedule.

The current dates and times of the activity are as follows:
Aug 4 (12:25-18:10 UTC) is setup and day 1 operations.
Aug 5 (11:15-18:45 UTC) is day 2 operations and close out.

This is the Moscow Aviation Institute SSTV experiment that is activate for orbital passes over Moscow, Russia. It has traditional been PD-180 or PD-120 and transmitting on 145.800 MHz.


**Update Aug. 3**

Looks like they made an adjustment to the schedule for Aug 5.
Aug 4 (12:25-18:10 UTC) is setup and day 1.
Aug 5 (08:15-18:25) is day 2 and close out of operations.


**Note** This is not the proposed ARISS event that was to remember the Apollo-Soyuz anniversary.

**Update Aug 4**
Seems the image theme for this MAI series is helicopters. Numerous images already posted to the Gallery at https://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/index.php

MAI SSTV - Jan 30 and 31

The Moscow Aviation Institute will be conducting one of their SSTV experiments on Jan 30 from about 13:30 UTC until about 19:00 UTC and again on Jan 31 from about 15:00 UTC until around 17:30 UTC. The computer that supports this activity failed recently so a replacement computer is being used but it is unknown what impact this change may have to the operations.
