ARISS Europe and ARISS USA teams plan to perform special SSTV Experiments on February 20 using a new SSTV digital coding scheme. The downlink from the International Space Station will be 437.800 MHz FM
The first experiment in the series will utilize ARISS approved ground stations in Europe that will transmit these digital SSTV signals. These will be available for all in the ISS footprint when SSTV transmissions occur.
We kindly request that the amateur radio community refrain from the use of the voice repeater during this ARISS-SSTV experiment on February 20, 2022, over Europe.
The first SSTV experiment is planned for February 20, 2022, between 05:12 UTC and 11:51 UTC for five ISS passes over Europe. Please be aware that this event depends on ARISS IORS radio availabilities and ISS crew support, so last-minute changes may occur.
