2016-04-11 First ISS pass with chance of SSTV, nothing heard1 year ago
In one of the articles about the current ISS SSTV event was a starting time of
19:2518:25 UTC, and the pass over my QTH JO22NC started at 19:28 UTC. So I was out with the whole setup and a strong arm to aim the antenna at the ISS in the hope of receiving something. But nothing was received. The fun part is that an ISS pass shortly after sundown gives a visual aid to aim the antenna at, but no signal received. Also noticed by Mike Rupprecht DK3WN: ISS – no SSTV active - DK3WN Satblog with a very nice image. Update: Corrected starting time after rereading ARISS commemorative event (April 11-14) - ARISS SSTV Images which has been updated with:*** Update (April 11, 2016)Update 2016-04-12: First images received now in Asia and available from the ARISS SSTV Gallery
Looks like the start will be delayed. Seems the hardware is having issues and not transmitting. Troubleshooting is in work.
