SSTV transmissions from the International Space Station
The Russian ARISS team plan to activate SSTV from the ISS on Saturday January 31 and on Sunday February 1, 2015.
Expected SSTV mode will be PD180 on 145.800 MHz with 3 minute off periods between transmissions. A total of 12 different photos will be sent during the operational period. This is the second series of pictures to be transmitted.
For years now I've been watching the ISS pass over where I live. This morning at approximately 6:26am I saw a flash of light around or behind the ISS. What could have caused this as I know the ISS has no flashing lights? Thanks.
