This was my second successful #ISS #SSTV reception from the April 2016
ISS SSTV event. My first reception is documented in last week's video:


This was also my first reception during this event with my friend
Sammy, KK4TJH. We ended up receiving a few more images on later passes
this day.

The April 2016 event took place during Tuesday and Wednesday, April
12th and 13th and it included a series of 12 images commemorating the
15th anniversary of the first ham radio QSO from the International
Space Station.

There was a second special event on Thursday and Friday  of the same
week to recognize the achievements of the Moscow Aviation Institute.
The event was titled MAI-75 and included a different series of images.
Most of the passes during this event were not over North America, but
there were TWO passes that were, and my next video will document this
rare reception I made of these two passes.

These ISS SSTV events happen a few times a year, and as you can see,
they're a ton of fun. To get ready for the next one, checkout my ISS
SSTV Reception Hints webpage:


73, John KG4AKV
