*SSTV Activity from the ISS is scheduled for February-Update*

*February 17, 2015* — ARISS announced that space enthusiasts have a second
chance to receive SSTV image transmissions from the International Space
Station.  Participants can anticipate watching for the transmissions from
February 21, 2015 through February 23, 2015.

The pictures to be downlinked will be Series 1 images allowing the
world-wide community of hams and schools to receive previously sent
pictures, but replacing one with new additional image added specially for
this event.

SSTV transmissions will begin running non-stop at 10:30 UTC on February 21
and ending at the start of the crew member’s sleep period on February 23.
As in previous sessions, the mode used to transmit the Slow Scan TV signals
will be PD180 producing high quality images with a frame scan of 187
seconds. All photos will be sent throughout an operation period in
intervals of 3 minutes on and 3 minutes off.

The transmit frequency will be 145.800 MHz.

Received images can be uploaded to the ARISS Image gallery found at
<http://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/index.php>* .*

The ARISS team is developing plans for transmitting new images to space
enthusiasts around the world in upcoming months.


Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative
venture of the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT), the American
Radio Relay League (ARRL) and the National Aeronautics and Space
Administration (NASA) in the United States, and other international space
agencies and international amateur radio organizations around the world.
The primary purpose of ARISS is to organize scheduled contacts via amateur
radio between crew members aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and
classrooms or informal education venues. With the help of experienced
amateur radio volunteers from amateur radio clubs and coordination from the
ARISS team, the ISS crew members speak directly with large group audiences
in a variety of public forums such as school assemblies, science centers
and museums, Scout camporees, jamborees and space camps, where students,
teachers, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies
and Amateur Radio.
