The 145.800 MHz FM Slow Scan Television (SSTV) transmissions from a International Space Station on Dec 5-6 should be receivable by radio amateurs around a world.

There should also be SSTV activity on Dec 7 and 8 during times when a ISS is in operation of Moscow.

The MAI-75 SSTV complement in a Russian Service Module will be put by some extended contrast from Dec 5 starting around 15:00 UTC and regulating until 09:00 UTC on Dec 6. Test images will be used during this period. This will yield nearby tellurian coverage if all works good on 145.800 MHz FM.

In a past images have been sent regulating a SSTV mode PD180, with a 3-minute off time between any image.

All we need to accept SSTV cinema approach from a space hire is to bond a audio outlay of a scanner or amateur radio transceiver around a elementary interface to a soundcard on a Windows PC or an Apple iOS device, and balance in to 145.800 MHz FM. You can even accept cinema by holding an iPhone subsequent to a radio loudspeaker.

The ISS puts out a clever vigilance on 145.800 MHz FM and a 2m handheld with a 1/4 call receiver should be adequate to accept it.

Many FM rigs can be switched been far-reaching and slight flaw FM filters. For best formula we should name a filter for wider 5 kHz flaw FM. Handhelds all seem to have a singular far-reaching filter propitious as standard.
