After initial delay, ARISS SSTV commemorative event continues being well received across the globe. These picures were recorded on 12th April 2016 at about 20:15 UTC in IO91:

PD180_20160412_215052

PD180_20160412_221548

Note this pass wasn't very favourable for my location, at its highest elevation (and, conversely, the strongest signal) a 3 minute off period (when no signal is transmitted from the ISS in order to allow the gear to cool off) kicked in. Therefore in this pass I could only record the end of one image and this one in which the signal slowly drifted into white noise as the ISS was reaching my radio-horizon. Still, I'm pretty pleased with this picture.

Received using:

  • Yaesu FT-857D
  • Fedora linux, Gpredict and remote hamlib for radio control (Doppler)
  • Raspberry Pi + Raspbian attached to radio for hamlib remote control and for audio capture
  • QSSTV (learn how)
