Hi readers I have just heard very strong SSTV signals on 145.800 mhz 24th Feb 2015 at 1725 GMT I tried to get sstv program ready it did eventually log onto pd180 but signal then went off, i looked but no Pass from ISS anybody shed light on where signal was coming from unless my prediction reports were wrong

regards Graham in Blackpool NW England IO83LD

PS signal did sound like it was spinning so possible a space thing.

Free SSTV software (PD180) for Android devices

Because a new SSTV session from ISS will follow soon, I would like to inform the portable hams and Android enthusiasts (in the same time), that a freeware application is available in Play Store, for SSTV decoding signals, including PD180 format.

The application is called Robot36 and can be found at the following link:

For encoding SSTV pictures, there is another freeware application, SSTV encoder (

Need help in West Michigan for a direct school contact

Hi everyone,

We have been told by the ARISS team that we are a finalist for a direct school contact between May and December of this year. We are in need of a primary station and amateurs to help make the contact. I will provide my ts2000 and have the kids build a backup antenna, either a turnstile or other omi antenna as per the ARISS susggestion. but I need someone with experience contacting satellites and and the ISS.

Our School is in Grand Rapids, Michigan so it would be great to get some local help. I have reached out to some local clubs but have not heard back yet.
