This is a bit of a long shot, but does anyone have a good audio recording of any of the recent SSTV activity from the ISS - the one that had images of Yuri Gagarin.
We are preparing some workshop material for an event that will occur the week before CNS School in Norfolk, UK, contacts Tim Peake.
We plan to run a workshop for youngsters with all sorts of radio-related activity including lighting light bulbs with RF, Morse code, APRS etc.
Soo guys... theres a report on the AMSAT OSCAR page... by F5OTS of SSTV heard from the ISS this Friday... At exactly 16:31 UTC...
Anyone can check it in here... http://www.amsat.org/status/
Anyone else can make a test and check if theres anything really happening?!
Lets hope so!!
Can anyone confirm if there is still an ISS Mailbox/BBS operating and if so what Freq and callsign ?
I recall RS0ISS-11 was operating some time back, but now closed.
