    The International Space Station (ISS) amateur radio Slow Scan Television (SSTV) transmissions on 145.800 MHz FM are expected to be activate over several days in April.

    The Inter-MAI-75 SSTV experiment should be active on:
    Monday, April 2 from 15:05-18:30 UT
    Tuesday, April 3 from 14:15-18:40 UT

    SSTV is also expected be active from April 11-14 world wide as part of Cosmonautics Day which takes place on April 12. Detailed times are still being worked into the schedule and will be published later.

    See here for more info:

    Images will be related to the Interkosmos project (

    The SSTV images will be transmitted on 145.800 MHz FM using the Kenwood TM-D710 transceiver located in the Russian ISS Service module. It is expected they will use the PD-120 SSTV format.

    Note the ISS transmissions use the 5 kHz deviation FM standard rather than the narrow 2.5 kHz used in Europe.

    If your transceiver has selectable FM filters try using the wider filter. Handheld transceivers generally have a single wide filter fitted as standard and you should get good results outdoors using just a 1/4 wave whip antenna.

    11 to 14 april: Russian SSTV Event to Celebrate Cosmonautics Day

    ARISS Russia is planning a special Slow Scan Television (SSTV) event from the International Space Station in celebration of Cosmonautics Day.

    The transmissions are to begin on April 11 at 11:30 UTC and run through April 14 ending at 18:20 UTC.

    Supporting this event is a computer on the ISS Russian Segment, which stores images that are then transmitted to Earth using amateur radio, specifically the onboard Kenwood TM-D710E transceiver.

    Transmitted images will be from the Interkosmos project period of the Soviet space program (

    ). Images received can be posted and viewed at .

    The transmissions which were coordinated with the ARISS scheduling team, 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.

    got a very good partial picture on its last pass near London ON.
    tuned in late as it was going past east coast.
    going to try again as it comes over @ 14:45 my time.
    the interference in the lower 1/3 of the picture is my 6M antenna
    Thought I saw some packet as well on the SDR display 201804111721.jpg
