Members decoded some of the images from the ISS SSTV Activity Period

Images received during the 21 June 2021 – 26 June 2021 SSTV activity period from the International Space Station are shown at the bottom of this page. The Club had primed its members by:

  1. Preparing pass predictions for the duration based on the Clubhouse location;
  2. Announcing the planned activity periods through its on-line News Posts and via:
    • The Clubs News Post RSS feed linked to:
      1. the Clubs public Groups.io mailing list; and
      2. the Clubs private members Groups.io mailing list;
    • The Clubs FACEBOOK page;
    • The Clubs LINKEDIN page;
    • The Clubs TWITTER feed; and
    • Placing scheduled TWEETS in the Club Timeline to warn approximately 15 minutes before a pass was due.

    The Clubs original News Post also contained links to:

    • The AMSAT guide to receiving SSTV from the ISS using home equipment;
    • An ESA video guide to receiving images from the ISS using the Goonhilly Web SDR; and
    • Links to suitable software for Windows, OSX, Linux (inc Raspbian), Android and iOS.

    Below are some “warts and all” examples of the images received by members of the Club, if any members have not submitted their images and would like to do so please send them to the e-mail address at the bottom of the page.

    If there is another scheduled SSTV activity period it will be published on the Club website. It would be nice to get all 12 cards from an activity period at some point.

    Copies of all of the images received by various Amateurs and SWLs around the world have been uploaded to the ARISS Gallery.
