Terrestrial ISS SpaceCam1 SSTV Test

Hi all
In anticipation of the tentatively planed SSTV broadcast from the International Space Station during the upcoming Garriott mission, I have set up a simulated ISS SSTV FM SSTV beacon.

During evening hours this week, ill be transmitting SSTV images using the same type of hardware and software they have available on ISS for the SpaceCam SSTV project.

The station consists of the following:
Kenwood TM-D700 dual band transceiver (same module that is on ISS)
The ARISS developed VOX box that connects between the PC and the D700
SpaceCam1 Marex SSTV imaging software package (same software that’s on ISS)

If you are in the New England area or along the Atlantic coast, try listening for the SSTV signals on 147.570 FM, using the SSTV format Robot-35.

The Antenna system is a 12-dBd gain and will be pointing from Lowell Massachusetts down the Atlantic coast.

Please send signal reports to Marex at SSTV@ISSSPACECAM.ORG

If you do not have a tracking program, here is a live link to NASA that will show you where ISS is located.
