SSTV Project Coming Up in October

Clint Bradford
 

The Russians might have another SSTV project from the ISS in October - watch for details!

Receiving beautiful images from the ISS can be as simple as holding your smartphone up 
to your HT - NO wiring necessary! See http://work-sat.com/SSTV.html for details.

Where are you getting your info? Would be nice to know whom to give credit to.

No trees were killed in the sending of this message. However, a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced !

Descrizione
Look out to SSTV blogs comment for confirmation
Possible NASA on the AIR/SCaN SSTV event. The transmissions will be made on " 145.800 MHz FM " using the PD-120 SSTV mode.
Two organizations will provide a total of " 12 images " . Six of the images will be from the NASA On the Air group, and these images will highlight milestones that commemorate the 60th anniversary of NASA. Six more images will be from the NASA SCaN STEM Innovation event held earlier this year.
The planned SSTV activity awaits a GO depending on the ISS crew planning.

Clint and group membership.
I am the NASA Radio Clubs POC for the #NASAonTheAir SSTV event, which is currently scheduled for the weekend of Oct 27. You can follow @NASARadioClubs on Twitter and you will always get the latest, and most accurate information. Sometimes I also cross post with my personal account, @supercazzola. So if you follow me, the radio clubs account, or both, you will know for sure. 

If you are not on Twitter, you can always visit nasaontheair.wordpress.com and our Twitter feed is displayed on the side of the webpage.
 
Again, I am in direct contact with ARISS, and they, with the cosmonauts who plan to do the transmissions. No need for grabbing your info from other places that can only speculate. Looking forward to seeing our images come down, and who will get the best copy of all 6 of the #NASAonTheAir images. 

Respectfully, 
-Kevin (KK4YEL)

THANK YOU for the citations! Looking forward to this ... and, of course, all is “up in the air” with the ISS crew issue ...

The Space Communications and Navigation (SCaN) program manages NASA’s three most important communications networks. The Space Network (SN), Near Earth Network (NEN), and the Deep Space Network (DSN. 
Just as in past ARISS SSTV commemorations, 12 images will be downlinked, but this time with 6 featuring the SCaN educational activities while the other 6 images will commemorate  major NASA anniversaries, ie when NASA was established, astronauts first landing on the moon, etc. 
In addition to the fun of receiving these images, participants can qualify for a special endorsement for the NASA On The Air (NOTA) celebration event. To learn more about NOTA, visit  ( https://nasaontheair.wordpresscom). 
Once received, Images can be posted and viewed athttp://www. spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/index.php .The transmissions are expected to be broadcast at the usual frequency of 145.800 MHz using the PD-120 SSTV mode. 
 
Please note that the event is dependent on other activities, schedules and crew responsibilities on the ISS and are subject to change at any time. 
 
More information will follow soon, so please continue to check for news and the most current information on the  AMSAT.org and  ARISS.org websites, theAMSAT-BB@..., the ARISS facebook at Amateur Radio On The International Space Station (ARISS) and ARISS twitter @ARISS_status.
