ISS SSTV Planned for December

Posted on Twitter from Amsat-UK and RF2Space.

ISS SSTV may be active on 145.800 MHz FM on December 8-9.

Seeing activities for MAI-75 on Dec 8 (12:35-1800) and Dec 9 (12:40-17:40) UTC. Times correspond to orbits over Moscow.

G7HCE – Tue, 2016 – 11 – 29 13:07


Are they going to broadcast SSTV Dec 8 and Dec 9 as they pass around the world, or are they only going to turn it on over the Moscow passes?

Can we see something here on the east coast of the US ?

It looks like the SSTV will be on continuous between dates and times shown Dec 8 (12:35-1800) and Dec 9 (12:40-17:40) UTC to cover orbits over Moscow. You will need to look at ISS passes to see if it's over your area during these time. Orbitron shows that it covers South America only during both days and not the east coast of US.

There's also an ARISS school contact in Italy December 8, 2016 at approximately 15:19 UTC. The downlink on UHF 437.525 MHz the same day on 145.800 the SSTV transmission so will be using both radios at same time.

Re: sstv 8 y 9 diciembre

Orbitron muestra las pistas de ISS que cubren el sur de América durante estos tiempos también y sstv podría estar disponible en su área.

Questions from New Amateur

Since the VHF Digipeater has recently died, will it still transmit on 145.800 MHz? Or will it move the UHF?

Radios on ISS

The ham radio in the Russian Segment is what supports the SSTV activity and also supports voice operations. SSTV will be on 145.800.
The radio in the Columbus module (USOS) is what supported VHF packet and Voice. The VHF radio has died and been replaced by the UHF radio and packet is now on 437.550.
