December 25, 2023 - Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) announces a special SSTV experiment to be held this week. The ISS Voice Repeater will be our downlink and several ARISS selected ground stations around the world will serve as SSTV uplink stations. Two special images will be sent on 437.800 MHz using PD120 formating.
This limited experiment will be conducted on several passes over Europe, Australia and the USA between Wednesday Dec. 27 to Saturday Dec. 30, 2023.
We hope radio enthusiasts will download the images and follow along with the event. We appreciate all hams holding off from using the repeater for voice contacts during the event. Watch http://www.ariss.org and ARISS social for pass information and more beginning on Tuesday Dec. 26.
