Arissat test sucesseful over Spain tonite.
Around 03.38z I could get the SSTV signal but on UHF: 437.550
You can see a short vid here:
the noise on the image was because I was on VHF and arrived late .-)
Some early reports out of S. Africa and Japan indicate that ARISSat-1 is active in test mode. This should include SSTV, Voice Telemetry, Data Telemetry. Doubtful that the Linear Transponder will work due to no external antenna available for the input (RX). The system should be active until 1400 UTC on Sunday (July 31).
