Amateur radio on the international space station
20th Anniversary Celebration
SSTV Image reception
is within your reach !
The 20th anniversary of Amateur Radio on the International Space Station event is going on through December 31, 2020. The astronauts and cosmonauts on-board the ISS are transmitting a series of Slow-Scan Television (SSTV) images periodically. There are at least 8 different images.
The transmissions are freely accessible to those who have suitable radio reception equipment and PC sound card image decoding software.
The equipment that will do the job is something many ham radio operators already have in their radio stations.
As part of our How Do I…? series we posted a step-by-step article earlier this year when a similar event took place. The link to that article is https://www.radioclub-carc.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/ARISS-SSTV-Presentation.pdf
To be recognized for your accomplishment, and to receive an award certificate, upload one of your received images to https://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/index.php
To be eligible for a certificate please complete your upload by January 3, 2021.
The ISS is transmitting on 145.800 MHz FM Simplex and using SSTV mode PD-120.
