Re: ISS SSTV



The 144.490MHz frequency being used on the ISS for the SSTV downlink is not
a valid satellite or SSTV frequency in Region 1 as it is just at the top of
the CW Beacon segment of the 2m band. So, if the ISS crew are on the ball,
they should not have SSTV on when passing over the UK. However, they did
have it on during one or more passes at the weekend when I was in the GB4FUN
bus at the AMSAT-UK Colloquium. We failed to capture a picture despite
having a crystal clear signal and correctly decoding the CW identification.
It was possibly because the software was not set up for the correct mode
(i.e. not Robot 36).

There may be other opportunities over the coming days/weeks but, as I say,
strictly speaking it should not be running over Region 1.
