SSTV Event to Help ARISS Mark 20 Years of Continuous Ham Radio Operation in Space

12/17/2020

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) will continue its year-long 20th anniversary celebration of continuous ham radio operation from the ISS this month, with a slow-scan television (SSTV) event over the holidays. The first ARISS school contact took place in December 2000, not long after the first ISS crew arrived on station a month earlier and had made test contacts. The commemorative late-December SSTV event will be held December 24 through December 31, although dates are subject to change. The frequency will be 145.800 MHz, using SSTV PD-120 mode. Over its 20 years, ARISS has supported nearly 1,400 scheduled ham radio contacts with schools, student groups, and other education organizations.

I’m sure somewhere in the hundreds of emails I receive every day there is information regarding where we can mail our TLARC dues payment for 2021. But can someone please shortcut that and give me an address?

Thanks!

Re: Xmas Party deferred until 2021

Thank you you the early notification. Although the wife and I were looking forward to seeing everyone, it is completely understandable. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone on the ZOOM session, and hearing everyone "on the air"!

Xmas Party deferred until 2021

David Andrews
 

Folks,

 

Following discussions yesterday between the current TLARC officers, the decision was made to cancel the TLARC Christmas Party next Wednesday. COVID-19 cases are up significantly in Tellico Village and the surrounding county. Loudon County has had a 17-18% testing positivity rate. New cases have increased from 3400 new cases two weeks ago to 7984 today. These conditions are not conducive to having 15-20 of us together.

 

Since we won’t be out and about Wednesday night, we WILL have a weekly TLARC radio net and a Zoom session instead. KV4XY will be NCS and KF4DKW will log. Please note your calendar; we hope to hear and see you next week.

 

Warmest regards,

 

David Andrews, N1ESK, outgoing TLARC Secretary

Fellow Club Members,

I was sent this YouTube video on how to program your radio to use the repeater on the ISS. I know many have tried to do this with some success, and others have asked how to do it. Maybe this video will help explain it.

I know that I'll program my FT3 and use my dual band handheld beam to see if I can make contact..... how about you?!??

Good luck!!! And talk to you "on the air" soon!

Re: Ham gear supplier

Tom Murphy
 

Hello Gary,
Richard and his team have doe a great job growing the business and taking care of Hams.     I bought a Yaesu 897D shack in a box (predessor to the 991A) from MTC about 10 years ago.    It's a good family run business that never compromised their principles that grew from an eBay seller to storefront in Paris, TX and now with a physical presence in Shrevesport MS serving all markets.   Good people.

Those two places also are my go-to places.  I didn’t know about their “price matching“ practice. I probably would have done that. But Good to know! Tnx, Mike.
