First ISS Contact from Ghana (9G2AA)

Hi, this is the first sstv signal that I received from my lab (Intelligent Space Systems laboratory-9G2AA) in Ghana, on saturday, 6th of September 2014. The frequency was 144.802Mhz. There is pause at the beginning of the recording when I was trying to send voice uplink to the ISS. Still trying to decode it and still trying to make voice contact with them. I removed the breaks in the audio in other to reduce the size of the audio

Thanks for the reply

I certainly received it during the ISS pass over Ghana and on their designated frequency. I am using a USRP N210 radio and SodaRadio as my hardware and software setup. I guess the frequency might be a little offset. However, can I receive NOAA satellite imagies on an amateur (ISS) frequency??

Thank you.

Your Answer

The sound you are hearing is coded images coming from a weather satellite. It might be one of the NOAA Sats. If you have the correct decoding software, you can receive the images that the sat is taking of earth.

Not ISS amateur radio

Not sure what you were recording but that is not like any signal I have heard from ISS amateur radio system. The packet system has much shorter bursts and is on 145.825. Voice or SSTV would be on 145.800.

ISS SSTV question -=9G2AA=-

Hello 9G2AA,

Here is a youtube video showing receiving a ISS SSTV picture!
At the end you hear voice conversation from Richard Garriott (space tourist aboard the ISS in 2008).
