Re: Again voices were heard during the SSTV transmissions.

Hi!

Yes, I heard voices during the two pictures I copied during the 2108 UTC pass this afternoon. Using a TH-D74 and Elk log periodic from my yard to record the transmissions, then decoding them with RX-SSTV on a Win7 laptop. One picture cleaner than the other. I have tweeted them, and the files from the current SSTV experiment are going in the "201712-ISS_SSTV" folder at http://dropbox.wd9ewk.net/

73!

Re: Voices

Hi Patrick

Voices were heard on both the last 2 passes over the UK. Sounded like pre-recorded messages possibly Russian? as they all sounded similar.

Re: voices

Hi!

Some tweets earlier mentioned that the voices were identifying (in Russian) where the ISS was passing over. One example over North America today had the voice announce that the ISS was over the Canadian province of Ontario. (Glenn AA5PK mentioned that, and he understands that language).

Re

Hi

Ah right thanks for that information as the voice sounded similar to when testing their cubesats inside the ISS a while ago.
