ARLS006 Slow-Scan Television Transmissions from ISS Planned

Hi folks,

This is tomorrow and Thursday.  Possibly.

It appears that all of the passes over this part of the planet are outside the operating schedule (between the two days, and after it's over), but it's possible that they may leave the radio on during that time. 

Also, in the past, the mode changes of the Ham station(s) have been a bit sluggish, so it's likely that the new cross-band repeater's operation may be disrupted as a result.  They don't usually run multiple stations at the same time, and I don't know which station is being used for this event.

So, mostly this is a heads-up for possible changes on the ISS.  No guarantees on any of it...

ARLS006 Slow-Scan Television Transmissions from ISS Planned

A Moscow Aviation Institute MAI-75 slow-scan television (SSTV)
experiment event is planned for Wednesday, September 30, from 1305
UTC to 1845 UTC, and Thursday, October 1, from 1230 UTC to 1745 UTC.
SSTV signals will be transmitted on 145.800 MHz, plus/minus Doppler
shift.

The expected mode will be PD 120, and the call sign will be RS0ISS.
Received images of reasonable quality may be posted on the ARISS

Hi folks,

Looks like they're live now!  See the attached...

I've also included the pass prediction table.  All times are local PDT.  Note that the last column ("Vis") denotes the visibility of the Station, with the visible passes (dark down here, light up there) marked with a "V".
