Receive SSTV from the ISS

This weekend ARISS Russia is running a special slow-scan television event from the International Space Station.

Unfortunately we learned the details too late to include in last week’s bulletin.

The transmissions started around 0900UTC on Friday and continue until around 1830UTC, Sunday, 1 July 2018.

The cosmonauts will be sending images commemorating the various satellites that were deployed by hand from the ISS.

Transmissions will be on 145.800MHz using the PD-120 SSTV mode.

You can check when the ISS is within range of your location via a number of websites, for example heavens-above.com.

A simple 2m handheld and rubber duck aerial is sufficient to pick up signals strong enough to be decoded, albeit with some noise.
