    ARISS is planning another of their popular Slow Scan Television (SSTV) experiment events.

    Transmissions are scheduled to begin Friday, Feb. 15 at 08:45 UTC and run through Sunday, Feb. 17 at 17:25 UTC.

    operations is a process by which images are sent from the International Space Station (ISS) via ham radio and received by ham operators, shortwave listeners and other radio enthusiasts on Earth, similar to pictures shared on cell phones using twitter or instagram.

    When this event becomes active, SSTV images will be transmitted from the ISS at the frequency of 145.80 MHz using the SSTV mode of PD120 and can be received using ham radio equipment as simple as a 2 meter handheld radio or a common shortwave or scanner receiver the covers the 2 meter ham band. After connecting the audio output of the radio receiver to the audio input of a computer running free software such as MMSSTV, the SSTV images can be displayed.

    Transmissions will consist of eight NASA On The Air (NOTA) images (see


    ). In additional, four ARISS commemorative images will also be included.

    Once received, Images can be posted and viewed by the public at

    http://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/index.php .

    In addition, you can receive a special SSTV ARISS Award for posting your image.

    Once the event begins, see details at https://ariss.pzk.org.pl/sstv/ .

    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.

    Same award from the ARISS SSTV Awards team(*) - so just download the images you might have "missed" last weekend!

    What fun ...

    (*) - But check the ARISS Awards page ... not sure if it is a language/translation issue - but there just might be a “different” award for receptions this weekend!

    I learned that it takes me precisely 2 minutes to run out of the office, grab my D72 and Elk and associated stuff (from the car), and set up and and start receiving SSTV. Got 2 good decodes on the 13:45 pass!

    Nice -- I missed a few from last time. I see Owen Garriott in one of the images -- which I don't have yet. His Wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Owen_K._Garriott) states that he was the first amateur radio operator to operate from space. He hammed where nobody had hammed before. As a further point of trivia, his son Richard (a private astronaut himself) is aka Lord British. I can't begin to describe how many hours the Ultima series consumed on my old Apple //. For an Easter Egg he put his dad in Ultima II as a character looking for his shuttle. So there you go.

    Got two images on the pass that just finished. A bit of static again, but still not too bad for a fixed vertical antenna. The second image below (10/12) was a race against time. It finished just as the ISS dipped below 5 degrees elevation.
