  3. Placing scheduled TWEETS in the Club TWITTER Timeline to warn approximately 15 minutes before a pass was due.

The Clubs original News Post also contained links to:

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.

We have managed to get a recording of one of the transmissions so that you can hear what an SSTV transmission sounds like. Most SSTV software is also capable of decoding recordings after the fact reducing the need for real-time decoding which some find is preferable. If you would like to download a copy please use the links below:

If you click on these links they will play the file, if you right click you can select “save link as…” to download a copy of the audio file.

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.
