ARISS SSTV July 18-19 to Commmemorate 40th Anniversary of the Apollo- Soyuz Mission

ARISS SSTV Images to Commmemorate 40th Anniversary of the Apollo-
Soyuz Mission

40 years ago this week, the historic joint Apollo-Soyuz mission was
conducted. Apollo-Soyuz (or Soyuz-Apollo in Russia) represented the
first joint USA-Soviet mission and set the stage for follow-on Russia-
USA space collaboration on the Space Shuttle, Mir Space Station and
the International Space Station. The Soyuz and Apollo vehicles were
docked from July 17-19, 1975, during which time joint experiments and
activities were accomplished with the 3 USA astronauts and 2 Soviet
Cosmonauts on-board. Apollo-Soyuz was the final mission of the
Apollo program and the last USA human spaceflight mission until the
first space shuttle mission in 1981.

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of this historic international
event, the ARISS team has developed a series of 12 Slow Scan
Television (SSTV) images that will be sent down for reception by
schools, educational organizations and ham radio operators,
worldwide. The SSTV images are planned to start sometime Saturday
morning, July 18 and run through Sunday July 19. These dates are
tentative and are subject to change. The SSTV images can be received
on 145.80 MHz and displayed using several different SSTV computer
programs that are available on the internet.

No SSTV heard but solid phone signal

Russian cosmonaut in QSO during the whole 1700Z pass, solid S+ report. I did not hear him mention SSTV transmissions. Apparently the ISS crew had some good ice cream recently.

PD180 expected

I've heard of no change to the mode so it seems likely that the Russian team are staying with the same PD180 mode they have been using.

Where did you get the

Where did you get the start/end times? The official announcments didn't have specific start/end times and said they were tentative. I thought that might be because last time (in April) there was a major hours long delay in the start time, and it also was rescheduled to go from Saturday through Sunday when it was initially only planned for Saturday.

Re: HRD v5.2 (free) includes HRDSatTrack

Hi Rudy
I use a Kenwood TS-2000 and free HRD v5.2 works very well with it. It also does real-time tracking in Google Earth via HRDSatTrack. I have used it in all versions of Windows from Win 95 to latest Win 8.1 without any problems.

Ham Radio Deluxe is a popular freeware amateur radio program suite that allow remote control of most popular transceivers using CAT interface.
Along to a logging program, Ham Radio Deluxe 5 offer DM780 a multimode decoding encoding software that allow CW RTTY PSK and more operating modes.
Many other features are offered by this amazing ham radio program, developed by Simon Brown under the freeware licence and then sold to HRDSoftware LLC that discontinued support for version 5 and released a new commercial version 6.
