Listen for SSTV signals to be downlinked at 145.800 MHz +/- Doppler shift. The mode of transmission is expected to be PD 120.

A few images from today's passes. Must be hitting their transmission rotation at pretty much the same point on each pass as I got the very similar sets of images on every pass.

1-Oct-2020 1st pass c1550UTC

2nd Pass c1725UTC

A few images from a couple passes over the UK yesterday. Hopefully I get the embedding imgur images correct

Captured with a mobile phone held to a baofeng handheld standing by the kitchen window ... it was p-ing down with rain, so didn't go outside. Might try for a couple of passes this afternoon / evening and see if I can get better images ... should be dry today.

30-Sep-2020 1st Pass c1640UTC

2nd Pass c1725UTC

I have completely unsuccessful trying to get the ISS X-band repeater so far. Probably need a better set up than the stock antenna on HT, although I have got scheduled astronaut /school kids sessions and SSTV images with that in the past. Even tried a couple of local-ish websdrs without success, even with near overhead passes. Oh well patience is a virtue ...

and talking of SSTV not sure what coverage there will be (since it's the "Russian side") there is some SSTV scheduled for the next couple of days (from ariss-sstv.blogspot.com ) ...

MAI SSTV activity on September 30 and October 1

 The Moscow Aviation Institute experiment is scheduled to be active on September 30 and October 1. The experiment will only be active during the following periods:

Sep 30 - Setup and activation 13:05 UTC

Sep 30 - Power off 18:45 UTC

Oct 1 Power on 12:30 UTC

Oct 1 Power off 17:45 UTC

Transmissions will occur on 145.80 and are expected to be in the PD120 mode.

I'm surprised that this hasn't made this forum yet. It's been out for 5 days. You people are slipping.


see https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,71968.0.html in the "Huh?" section

Strong signal still, direct to S.E UK

Strong to UK 55555
1938 c&w instrumental
1940 Running Bear
... More c&w often snippets...

2350 SINPO 44444 music
2352 id
2353 music

In the end I managed to get 4 images from various passes over the 2 days.
Probably not the best quality but I using a Baofeng held in one hand and a mobile phone to record the audio in the other while standing by a window. Then imported files to MMSSTV to decode.

I got images 1, 8, 10 and 12 of the set and they can be found at:


Being a bit further west than you I got picture 8/12 from this pass.

My first time trying to capture SSTV with a Baofang HT held next to computer mic so not the best quality capture but just about identifiable.

Hope for better luck with a bit of practice during today's passes over the UK. Will post capture(s) if I manage to get anything of reasonable quality.
