New ISS SSTV Video and "ISS SSTV Reception Hints" webpage

To help promote the tentative December 26th International Space
Station Slow Scan TV event (and another that is planned over the next
few months) I made a new video of an ISS SSTV reception I filmed last
April. I also made an webpage with extensive information, resources,
and hints on receiving ISS SSTV events, including the upcoming ones.

Received soyuz comm

Hello everybody,

Yesterday a short communication from the soyuz to the ISS was heard by myself on 143.625Mhz in FM mode.
Very loud and clear for about two minutes, the next pass they where docked to the ISS so no more comm heard.
Maybe nice to know next time they launch, luckely i guess they did a manual aproach yesterday and needed to communicate.
Very nice to hear them in real time.

Scanner i used is a Yupiteru MVT 7000 in combination with Diamond RH951S antenna.
signal was S 5 till S 7
