Slow scan TV pictures from space
The International Space Station (ISS) MAI-75 experiment (Slow Scan TV on 145.800 MHz) takes place on Thursday and Friday May 13-14.
The transmissions will take place in Robot-36 on Thursday May 13 from 10:00 - 17:00 UTC and on Friday May 14 from 12:45 - 16:00 UTC.
Previous activations of the SSTV system have produced some good images that can be seen on the ARISS SSTV picture gallery site.
The ISS puts out a strong signal on 145.800 MHz FM and a 2m handheld with a 1/4 wave groundplane antenna will be enough to receive it.
My first aprs packet off of the station this evening. 2234UTC this evening. I feel a sense of accomplishment. I was using diamond x50NA antenna on the roof of the house with 10 watts into 50ft of LMR400.
No special antenna was needed.
