Surprising, especially with a cargo mission heading its way to the ISS this week. BUT ...

Russian cosmonauts are expected to activate Slow Scan Television (SSTV) image transmissions on 145.800 MHz FM from the International Space Station on Wednesday to Friday, December 4, 5 and 6.

This is the schedule for the planned activation of the MAI-75 SSTV activity from the ISS.

• Dec 4: On - 12:00 GMT, Off - 16:50 GMT
• Dec 5: On - 11:25 GMT, Off - 17:15 GMT
• Dec 6: On - 10:20 GMT, Off - 16:40 GMT

Transmissions will be sent on 145.800 MHz FM in the SSTV mode PD-120. Once received, images can be posted and viewed by the public at http://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/index.php

ISS SSTV uses a Kenwood TM D710E transceiver which is part of the amateur radio station located in the Russian ISS Service Module.

Please note that SSTV events are dependent on other activities, schedules and crew responsibilities on the ISS and subject to change at any time. You can check for updates regarding planned operation at:
