I have always got my scanner running continually and recently I have been getting unknown transmission (music (classical), voice(unknown language), and bleeps (morse ?), all at the same time for a few seconds ocasionaly (145.800). Was wondering where these transmissions are coming from (I am in the UK but it certainly isn't being transmitted in English).
The Soyuz TMA-22 spacecraft carrying Expedition 30 Commander Dan Burbank and Flight Engineers Anton Shkaplerov and Anatoly Ivanishin landed in Kazakhstan at 7:45 a.m. EDT. They undocked from the International Space Station at 4:18 a.m. officially ending their stay.
The Soyuz performed a deorbit burn at 6:49 a.m. before the descent module separated from the rest of the Russian spacecraft and entered the Earth’s atmosphere. Afterward, the Soyuz deployed several parachutes, slowing its descent, and then fired three small engines to soften its landing.
