2020-10-04 #ISS Expedition 63 – ARISS Series 16 "Satellites" #SSTV activity.

The 2 min gap between images has been reset but the modulation was significantly lower during the recent pass over Europe.

Simple FM. And since 2m - no Doppler accommodation really necessary.

ARISS Satellite SSTV planned for October 4-8

 

An ARISS worldwide SSTV event is scheduled from the International Space Station during the period of October 4-8. Dates and times could vary due to ISS operational changes.

 

 

Images will be downlinked at 145.8 MHz in the expected SSTV mode of operation is PD 120. The main theme of this collection of images will be Satellites. Radio enthusiasts participating in the event can post and view images on the ARISS SSTV Gallery at https://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/ .

 

 

 

After your image is posted at the gallery, you can acquire a special award by linking to https://ariss.pzk.org.pl/sstv/ and follow directions for submitting a digital copy of your received image.


Re: ISS SSTV Projects

They will! A couple passes of this last project went over the East Coast of the US. 

But keep watching for possible future projects! Get your gear ready!

Just as an FYI, here is the ham gear on board the ISS ...

​Columbus Module radios:
  • IORS - Cross band repeater activate. System supporting USOS school events.
  • Ericsson VHF-  Stowed. To be scheduled for component return and/or disposal.
  • Ericsson UHF- Stowed. To be scheduled for component return and/or disposal.
  • MarconISSta - Stowed.
Service Module radios:
  • Kenwood D700, station #1 (delivered in 2003) - Stowed.
  • Kenwood D700, station #2 (delivered in 2008) -Stowed.
  • Kenwood D710E (delivered in 2014 for MAI-SSTV) – Supporting Russian scheduled voice contacts.

I would be so happy if the ISS crew would send some SSTV images over North America again. My wife Darlene KC9SBN and I enjoy receiving the images even though the neighbors are probably thinking, what are those people doing out there pointing those antennas at the sky. :) Clint Bradford, Very nice info on the URL you shared.

ARISS Opportunity for Educators

Clint Bradford
 

Message to US Educators Amateur Radio on the International Space Station contact opportunity
Call for proposals

New Proposal Window is October 1, 2020 to November 24, 2020

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) Program is seeking formal and informal education institutions and organizations, individually or working together, to host an Amateur Radio contact with a crew member on board the ISS. ARISS anticipates that the contact would be held between July 1, 2021 and December 30, 2021. Crew scheduling and ISS orbits will determine the exact contact dates. To maximize these radio contact opportunities, ARISS is looking for organizations that will draw large numbers of participants and integrate the contact into a well-developed education plan.

The deadline to submit a proposal is November 24 th, 2020.   Proposal information and more details such as expectations, proposal guidelines and the proposal form can be found at  www.ariss.org . An ARISS Introductory Webinar session will be held on October 8, 2020 at 8 PM ET.  The Eventbrite link to sign up is:  https://ariss-proposal-webinar-fall-2020.eventbrite.com  

The Opportunity

Crew members aboard the International Space Station will participate in scheduled Amateur Radio contacts. These radio contacts are approximately 10 minutes in length and allow students to interact with the astronauts through a question-and-answer session.

An ARISS contact is a voice-only communication opportunity via Amateur Radio between astronauts and cosmonauts aboard the space station and classrooms and communities. ARISS contacts afford education audiences the opportunity to learn firsthand from astronauts what it is like to live and work in space and to learn about space research conducted on the ISS. Students also will have an opportunity to learn about satellite communication, wireless technology, and radio science. Because of the nature of human spaceflight and the complexity of scheduling activities aboard the ISS, organizations must demonstrate flexibility to accommodate changes in dates and times of the radio contact.

Amateur Radio organizations around the world with the support of NASA and space agencies in Russia, Canada, Japan and Europe present educational organizations with this opportunity. The ham radio organizations’ volunteer efforts provide the equipment and operational support to enable communication between crew on the ISS and students around the world using Amateur Radio.

Please direct any questions to ariss.us.education@... .

About ARISS:

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that support the International Space Station (ISS). In the United States, sponsors are the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT), the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the ISS National Lab-Space Station Explorers, and NASA’s Space Communications and Navigation program. The primary goal of ARISS is to promote exploration of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics topics by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew members aboard the ISS and students. Before and during these radio contacts, students, educators, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies, and amateur radio. For more information, see www.ariss.org .

Using and entering YOUR pass data for the ISS’ new crossband repeater is VERY useful - especially since it is turned OFF for ARISS events, and when missions approach/leave the ISS.

It will be turned off approx 0900 UTC this Monday to support an ARISS contact.
