Suitsat One Step Closer to Deployment/SSTV Equipment on-board ISS

ISS Amateur Radio

From Frank H. Bauer, KA3HDO:
On Thursday September 8 at 13:08 UTC, Progress 19P lifted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Included in the 2.5 tons of fuel, food and supplies are two Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) systems---the Suitsat amateur radio hardware and the Slow Scan
Television (SSTV) hardware and software.
The successful docking of Progress to ISS on September 10 culminates the successful design, development, certification and delivery of these two ARISS Projects. The ISS Expedition 11 crew will unpack this equipment, making it available for installation, use and deployment by the Expedition 12 crew.

ISS STATUS REPORT 10 SEPT. 2005

ISS Status Report

A 2½-ton delivery arrived at the back door of the International Space Station today as an unpiloted Russian cargo ship linked up to the Zvezda module's docking port at 9:42 a.m. CDT, filled with supplies for Expedition 11 Commander Sergei Krikalev and Flight Engineer John Phillips and spare parts for repair to some Station systems.

The crewmembers were inside Zvezda monitoring the automated docking as ISS flew 220 statute miles above Central Asia near northern Kazakhstan at the time of contact and capture. Once leak checks are completed, Krikalev and Phillips will open the hatch to Progress later today and
will begin to unload its contents on Sunday.

ISS STATUS REPORT 8 SEPT. 2005

ISS Status Report

A new shipment of supplies is on its way to the International Space Station. The ISS Progress 19 resupply vehicle lifted off today from its
launch pad at the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, at 8:08 a.m. CDT (7:08 p.m. Baikonur time). Less than 10 minutes later, the cargo ship
reached orbit, and its solar arrays and navigational antennas were deployed for its two-day trip to the orbital outpost.

PCSAT2 Mode Change

ISS Amateur Radio

The PCSAT2 side-A system has been operated for 4 weeks in PSK-31 mode, and will now be changed from PSK-31 mode to UI/APRS Packet digipeater mode. See:
http://www.ew.usna.edu/~bruninga/pec/pc2ops.html

In this mode, the uplink is 145.825 and downlink is 435.275 +/- 10 kHz doppler to avoid any interference with the 145.800 ARISS operations. The system is 1200 baud with the callsign of PCSAT2 and alias of ARISS, so the same setting as you use for normal ARISS packet, should work here too if you use the ARISS alias.

Again, refer to the PCSAT2 operations page and the User Service Agreement for this mode. Specifically, unattended beacons are not authorized. The digipeater is for human communications, not blind beacons. See:
