Verification test Oct 3-5

  The SSTV system in the Service Module which has been down due to a component failure will be activated from Oct 3-5 to verify a replacement piece of hardware. Images will be transmitted on 145.800 MHz and in the typical PD120 format. Images can be posted to the Gallery.

Since this is a test of replacement components of the system, there may be unexpected outages or issues.

UPDATE - Oct. 4.

Seems there were some odd behavior by the radio so the test has been suspended to try and better understand the issue. Looks like they will have to try again a bit later in the month.
