SSTV December

The Russian ARISS team members plan to activate SSTV from the International Space Station on Thursday, December 18 and Saturday, December 20, 2014

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.

Start time would be around 14:20 UT on December 18 and 12:40 UT on December 20.
The transmissions should terminate around 21:30 UT each day.

SpaceX will be launching to the this week and delays in the launch could change SSTV

Voice Contact?

Hello Everyone.

My name is Donevin Kelly. I am a 16 year old South African, studying in Bishkek Kyrgyzstan. I am a licensed Radio Amateur Operator. I have been trying many times to contact the ISS, yet I seem to be having some problems.

Xastir as a Satgate?

I wanted to use Xastir as a SatGate for my area.

However instead of gating packets from the ISS it's gating packets being sent/addressed to the ISS.

It doesn't gate anything it hears from the ISS and instead is just gating terrestrial hams trying to contact the iss.

Do I need to use a specific server or something?
All the information I've seen appears to be really outdated.

US Spacewalk Frequencies


I am aware of the frequencies used during Russian spacewalks but I am wondering if it is possible to tune into the US spacewalks too?

I have looked around the site but can't see the frequencies or any other information about it listed.

Can anyone help?
