0:01 Control Center, Moscow... ISS... UHF-1
0:06 Can you hear us?
00:16 Well.. UHF... came um... to check the link..
00:22 And a question..
00:26 So we took out the sleeve nut on CSM-9 but it does not go any further of course.. We have doubts regarding applying a force; it needs rocking... rocking slightly.. the cap is thin..
00:52 ??
00:54 so we are rocking slightly but the gap.. we see that when rocking it appears.. the hair-thin or so.. generally speaking, nothing you could put under.. no, not working out
01:11 so if something hard like a screwdriver.. and then press it out gradually...
01:22 stays in place
01:40 well yes, it's understood... rocking
01:54 and when slowly.. ??? ... nothing.. it does not even notice itself.. the movement..
02:10 and here.. ??? (static)
02:17 hexahedron.. is this a molded nut? or it was simply an idea like that ... ??? ...
02:27 so, there, indeed, was ??? (static)
02:37 ?? so this signal.. where this, well, tube is inserted.. so it looks like it is molded
02:48 so it's not even worth to try to twist her..
02:52 (other party): yes..
02:55 (other party): don't.. not her..
02:56 understood. so then she's only to hold back the joint during the tightening the sleeve nut..
03:03 understood.. that's good.

You are welcome!

Looks like there are lots of repairs and maintenance going on! ;-)
What gear do you use for receiving/recording the transmissions?

Submitted by VA3PAW on Tue, 2011-03-08 18:32.

My equipment

For receiving I use an Uniden UBC3500xlt scanner and a home-made 137.5 MHz QFH antenna at only 3 meters above ground level. Because my hobbyroom is at the 3th level of my house, and between the antenna and the scanner there is about 30 meters coax RG-59U (yes, 75 Ohm) I use a very cheap radio/tv pre-amplifier.
At the PC I use Orbitron for tracking the ISS, AWG Packet Engine for Packet decoding, MMSSTV for SSTV pictures, Scanner Recording for recording (audio cable between scanner and PC) and Audacity for sound. All these programs are freeware and I think it's the perfect combination for receiving the ISS.
I made the QFH for receiving NOAA weather satellite pictures with WXtoIMG at the PC.
For this I have two older scanners with a discriminator connection.
For Milsat satellite receiving I made a 6 elem. Yagi and a 6 turns Helical, both for 260 MHz.
Further I use 3 J-Pole's for different frequencies and 2 HF wire pole's. Also made by my self.
I like to get the best results on the easiest (and cheapest) way.

I love the ingenuity! That is so cool! Very inspiring, especially when many think you need elaborate gear to do this!
