ARISS Schoolcontacts between July and December 2017

July 2017

ISS ARISS  Yeasu FT-736R (25W) + 5 el LPDA
05/07/17 I heard the satellite Tanusha 1 [спутники Тануша 1], downlinked at 145.800 MHz FM and activated inside the International Space Station (ISS) Russian Segment as part of a verification test from July 4-8. Greeting messages in Russian, English, Spanish and Chinese are clearly heard with strong signal at around 07.30 UTC.

07 & 08/07/14 The ISS repeater was active, heard several stations including F4DXV, TM24TDF, m0npt, f4cqa... I was not able to work them for one reason or another... I later discovered that I used the wrong input frequency... preparation is everything...

20 to 24/07/17 I heard and decoded SSTV, in commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of ARISS, during different pases. All passes were between 00.00 and 06.00 local time. I managed to get some good pics even on a pass with maximum 3 degrees of elevation.

ISS ARISS  Yeasu FT-736R (25W) + 5 el LPDA
05 -> 08/12/17 SSTV: on the 05/12 no reception as the test was delayed!
The first succes was on 06/12 at 15.07 utc in PD120 mode (and not in PD180 as usual) and again at 16.40, 18.16, 19.53 and 21.29 utc with strong signals and nearly perfect pictures!
I also received pictures on 07/12 at 15.47 and 17.24 UTC, and again on 08/12 at 14.55 and 16.32 UTC.
All done with a vertical dipole on tripod on balcony and with my V2000 lying horizontally because of heavy storm...
I wrote a small "Howto decode SSTV from the ISS", with pictures decoded on that day, that you can find on my website:
