SSTV Activity from the ISS is scheduled for February-Update

February 17, 2015 — ARISS announced that space enthusiasts have a second chance to receive SSTV image transmissions from the International Space Station. Participants can anticipate watching for the transmissions from February 21, 2015 through February 23, 2015.

The pictures to be downlinked will be Series 1 images allowing the world-wide community of hams and schools to receive previously sent pictures, but replacing one with new additional image added specially for this event.

SSTV transmissions will begin running non-stop at 10:30 UTC on February 21 and ending at the start of the crew member’s sleep period on February 23. As in previous sessions, the mode used to transmit the Slow Scan TV signals will be PD180 producing high quality images with a frame scan of 187 seconds. All photos will be sent throughout an operation period in intervals of 3 minutes on and 3 minutes off.

The transmit frequency will be 145.800 MHz.

Received images can be uploaded to the ARISS Image gallery found at http://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/index.php .
The ARISS team is developing plans for transmitting new images to space enthusiasts around the world in upcoming months.

ABOUT ARISS
Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative venture of the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT), the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the United States, and other international space agencies and international amateur radio organizations around the world. The primary purpose of ARISS is to organize scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew members aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and classrooms or informal education venues. With the help of experienced amateur radio volunteers from amateur radio clubs and coordination from the ARISS team, the ISS crew members speak directly with large group audiences in a variety of public forums such as school assemblies, science centers and museums, Scout camporees, jamborees and space camps, where students, teachers, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies and Amateur Radio.

Had great satisfaction in monitoring the ISS SSTV on 145.8.
over the weekend just past.

used either a Yaesu FT817 or VR500 (scanning rx) with vertical antennas.

Look forward to more, and maybe a voice contact one day!

Also managed to video some signal capture, it's on he following link.

maybe they decided to extend the transmissions due to the spacewalk, but it is 0:37Z on 24 FEB and I just decoded two during the last pass...
