Russian SSTV Transmission Events Planned
March 29, 2018:
ARISS Russia is planning Slow Scan Television (SSTV) transmissions from the International Space Station. The transmissions are scheduled to occur over Moscow on April 2, 2018 from 15:05 through 18:30 UTC and on April 3, 2018 from 14:15 through 18:40 UTC. The MAI-75 experiment uses a computer on the ISS Russian Segment, which stores images that are then transmitted to Earth using the amateur radio, specifically the onboard Kenwood TM D710E transceiver. Images received can be posted and viewed at http://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/index.php .The transmissions will be broadcast at 145.800 MHz using the PD-120 SSTV mode.
Please note that the event is dependent on other activities, schedules and crew responsibilities on the ISS and are subject to change at any time.
Please check for news and the most current information on the AMSAT.org and ARISS.org websites, the AMSAT-BB@amsat.org, the ARISS facebook at Amateur Radio On The International Space Station (ARISS) and ARISS twitter @ARISS_status.
Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that support the International Space Station (ISS). In the United States, sponsors are the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT), the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the Center for the Advancement of Science in space (CASIS) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The primary goal of ARISS is to promote exploration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew members aboard the ISS and students in classrooms or public forms. Before and during these radio contacts, students, educators, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies, and amateur radio. For more information, see www.ariss.org.
