  • kam xl   21 weeks 2 days ago

    For a very quick test and to get you name on the ariss.net site.

    connect the kam to a pc / terminal programme putty or minicom etc.

    Just use the following commands for initail set up:

    AUTOCR OFF
    BEACON OFF
    LFADD OFF
    MAXFRAME 4
    MCON ON
    MCOM ON
    MONITOR ON
    PACLEN (Round Table and PMS = 72, APRS = 0)
    RETRY 6-8
    TIME STAMP (Round Table and PMS = ON, APRS = OFF)
    UNPROTO CQ VIA RS0ISS, FRANK, FM19SX (change name and locator)

    now you need to go into converse mode, just type: conv

    each line you type and hit return will now cause the radio to key and transmit.

    to send a basic message just type it and press return.

    to send an APRS location, get you house on the map try something like this, changing your lat and long to suit.

    From experience I dont always hear the ISS, but using the prediction software in ham radio deluxe (HRD) I send up a few messages during the passover and usually get logged once or twice.

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers for now

  • Black Knight Satellite ... ???   21 weeks 4 days ago

    I have been fascinated with the Black Knight Satellite, and was wondering if anyone knew any of the frequencies it was on, even a band? Thanks!

  • Russian SSTV Images from the ISS   21 weeks 6 days ago

    Hello Shlomo,

    I had a packet connect with you via RS0ISS-3 digipeater at 12 januari 2004.

    Yes it was Yelena Serova voice active between the SSTV pictures.
    She operated via the Russian ISS callsign RS0ISS and she worked several Russian stations.
    I have made an audio recording:

    I hope the link works.

    I think Yelena enjoyed making radio contacts with other amateur radio stations.
    I hope to hear her again in the future.

    Shalom Cor,

    I haven't had a QSO with the ISS since 2006; I've been active on HF since then. I just came back to see if I could receive their SSTV transmissions. Last night I finally got a good picture!

    I want to get set up for Packet again, and I'll also try for a voice QSO. I don't know if they are making random QSO's lately. Last night I heard a female voice after the end of the SSTV transmission. I assume that it was Elena.

    Nice to hear from you again after all these years.

    Hi ISSFans !

    Yesterday 1 february 2015 during the europe passing a very BIG MISTERY !!!

    Like in the 1960 years the case of the CORDIGLIA ham radio brothers …. Hi !

    In the first pass at 20.55 local time a woman voice sound like a english speak ….

    In the second pass at 22:32 local time this woman voice call for two times : “ Samantha”

    Here the 2 records add to me in one file mp3 record .

    http://rodolfo-parisio.jimdo.com/nuovi-articoli-2015/?logout=1

    This the complete sequence in time lap seconds:

    00:08 at the end the voice say: “united states…(omissis) ….. for you”
    00:28 the first: samantha
    00:58 the second: samatha
    01:11 the voice say : “…..ok europe”

    I think is the russian cosmonaut woman abord ISS, but the very big mistery is , why speak in english is is in the russian module for SSTV experiment ? and, why call for two times the name of Samantha (cristoforetti) ?

  • ISS Radio Report   22 weeks 23 hours ago

    Rx'd 4.5 pictures so far mostly top quality. Signal VERY loud I can hear voices under the picture signal. The half of picture was as the ISS dropped over my horizon. Congratulations to all concerned it's brightened up my weekend no end

  • Russian SSTV Images from the ISS   22 weeks 1 day ago

    I just received this a few minutes ago near Detroit, MI, USA:

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28682151/PD180_20150201_12738.png

    It appears the guys have solved the modulation issue. Next pass looks to be much better - hopefully it will result in a better quality image (or 2).

  • Russian SSTV Images from the ISS   22 weeks 1 day ago

    After a long wait and tree overpases without audio, finally i got a picture!!
    Very strong signal, a Handheld with a 5/8 magnetig over the car roof and an audio recorder to later process on the QTH with MMSSTV.
    Quality as expected with this basic arragement.

    Pictures captured can be seen on http://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/index.php

    Good Luck for all and 73s

    Hello All,

    It seems the Russian crew have solved the audio problem.
    Amateur radio operators have received ISS SSTV photos.
    Some are visible on:

  • Russian SSTV Images from the ISS   22 weeks 1 day ago

    Hello Shlomo,

    Nice to see you are still active with ISS amateur radio activities.
    Long time agoo we had a packet connect via ISS and exchanced QSL cards.
    Probably the Russian ISS crew was (in voice) talking with the Russian ARISS manager Sergey Samburov (RV3DR).
    This is good news because I asume Sergey will give instructions to the Russian crew to solve the carier problem.
    This problem also happend in the past and ISS crew often managed to get the SSTV audio working in later passes.

    Yes got my first picture, very little noise great ! In Christchurch

  • Russian SSTV Images from the ISS   22 weeks 1 day ago

    Looks like the problem was solved. I've heard SSTV on websdr server located in Krasnoyarsk. Can't wait to listen when ISS pass my loc in one hour!

  • Russian SSTV Images from the ISS   22 weeks 1 day ago

    Another good pass from 1912 - 1921 UTC. Carrier only, peaking S9+20 db. At the end of the pass I heard someone speaking in Russian - R5 signal!. I don't know Russian so I have no idea what he was saying and whom he was speaking with. I did hear the name "Sergei" several times.

    I hope that the SSTV will be OK tomorrow.
