MAI-75 SSTV June 9 and 10
MAI-75 will be conducting their experiment of transmitting SSTV images over specific orbits that overfly Moscow on June 9 and 10. Amateurs along the ground track of these orbits should have the opportunity to receive these images as well. Modes and targeted transmission periods are listed below.

SSTV images will be transmitted at 145.800 MHz using a Kenwood TM-D710 transceiver. They are expected to use the PD-120 SSTV format .

Schedule:

June 09, 2021 (Wednesday) - from ~ 09:35 UTC until 13:45 UTC (time may change).
June 10, 2021 (Thursday) - from ~ 08:55 UTC until 14:25 UTC (times may change).

SSTV Transmissions from the International Space Station

Friday and Saturday August 6 - 7, 2021, Russian cosmonauts onboard the International Space Station will transmit slow-scan television (SSTV) images from the station on 145.800 MHz FM. They will use SSTV mode PD-120.

The transmissions are part of the Moscow Aviation Institute SSTV experiment (MAI-75) and will be sent via RS0ISS, the ham station in the Russian Zvezda (Service) module using a Kenwood TM-D710 transceiver.

The announced schedule is August 6, 10:50 – 19:10 UTC and August 7, 09:50 – 15:55 UTC. Dates and times are subject to change.

For ground stations in the ISS footprint, the RS0ISS signal should be easy to copy on a handheld transceiver and a quarter-wave whip. Use 25-kHz channel spacing, if available. Free ISS software is available to download.

Pass predictions are available from AMSAT via https://www.amsat.org/track/ .

Representative images from prior ISS SSTV events are available in the ARISS SSTV Gallery at https://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/index.php .

This will be a telebidge contact via amateur radio between youngsters at the Children’s National Hospital, Washington, DC, USA and Astronaut Akihiko Hoshide KE5DNI.

Amateur radio station IK1SLD, located in northern Italy, will be the ham radio ground station for this contact.

The downlink frequency for this contact is 145.800 MHZ and may be heard by listeners in Europe that are within the ISS-footprint.

The ARISS radio contact is scheduled for Tuesday September 21, 2021 at 18:05:35 UTC, which is 20:05:35 CEST.

Una notizia che non avrei mai voluto apprendere e divulgare.
Faccio i migliori auguri a Paolo di tornare quello che abbiamo sempre conosciuto.
Questo è il messaggio augurale inviato a Paolo su WhatsApp

Caro Paolo ho letto una notizia che non avrei mai voluto apprendere. Ti auguro, anche a nome di tutta AMSAT Italia, di tornare ad essere il Paolo che abbiamo sempre conosciuto con la sua grande umanità e grande competenza.
Che tu possa continuare a veder crescere i tuoi figli e trasmettergli tutti i valori di cui sei portatore.
Con la speranza che il peggio sia ormai alle spalle ti abbraccio con affetto.
Emanuele D'Andria
AMSAT Italia Chair
Riporto la risposta di Paolo al nostro messaggio

Emanuele - grazie per il tuo (vostro) messaggio che mi ha fatto molto piacere. Si, ora il peggio sembra alle spalle e devo solo recuperare e mettermi in forma (ci vorra' qualche mese!)
Un abbraccio a tutti, pn
