SSTV från ISS fortsätter på 145.800 MHz

SSTV-sändningarna från ISS fortsätter ett tag till på 145.800 MHz. De kör mycket effekt och det går att lyssna på en handapparat.

SSTV transmissions from the Russian Service module on the
International Space Station started June 29 on 145.800 MHz FM and
they are still continuing

There may well be further transmissions up until July 13 when the
equipment being used for the SSTV will be required for a school
contact.

David Boult G7HCE in Exeter noted that some adjustments have been
made by the cosmonauts and the images are now being sent uncropped.
For the first week the edges of the pictures were missing.

The images commemorate the various satellites that were hand-
deployed from the ISS. These will include the first satellite
deployment from ISS: Suitsat-1/Radioskaf-1 which was developed by
ARISS and deployed in February 2006.

The transmissions are being made on 145.800 MHz FM using the PD-120
SSTV mode.

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.
