ISS activates SSTV ! QRPers stay tuned

Great news!

The Russian team are planning to activate SSTV from the International Space Station (ISS) on Thursday December 18
The transmissions will be continued until Saturday December 20, 2014.

SSTV mode will be PD180 : Frequency 145.800 MHz with 3 minute off periods between transmissions. Twelve different photos will be sent during the operational period.

Start time would be around 14:20 UTC on December 18 and 12:40 UTC on December 20. The transmissions should terminate around 21:30 UTC each day.

I will be tuned on the VHF frequency with my ARROW antenna and my FT 817 🙂
I will post SSTV photos if I can receive one!
