Hieronder de aankondiging van SSTV uitzendingen vanuit ISS.
Het ontvangen van SSTV uitzendingen is ook mogelijk door gebruik te maken een SSTV App. Houdt de smartphone in de buurt van een goed afgestemde ontvanger (145,800 MHz.) en het plaatje verschijnt op het beeldscherm.
ARISS is planning another of their popular Slow Scan Television (SSTV) experiment events. Transmissions are scheduled to begin Friday, Feb. 15 at 08:45 UTC and run through Sunday, Feb. 17 at 17:25 UTC. SSTV operations is a process by which images are sent from the International Space Station (ISS) via ham radio and received by ham operators, shortwave listeners and other radio enthusiasts on Earth, similar to pictures shared on cell phones using twitter or instagram.
When this event becomes active, SSTV images will be transmitted from the ISS at the frequency of 145.80 MHz using the SSTV mode of PD120 and can be received using ham radio equipment as simple as a 2 meter handheld radio or a common shortwave or scanner receiver the covers the 2 meter ham band. After connecting the audio output of the radio receiver to the audio input of a computer running free software such as MMSSTV, the SSTV images can be displayed.
Transmissions will consist of eight NASA On The Air (NOTA) images (see https://nasaontheair.wordpress
Once received, Images can be posted and viewed by the public at http://www.spaceflightsoftware
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.
