Russian cosmonauts on the International Space Station (ISS) are planning to transmit Slow Scan TV (SSTV) images on 145.800 MHz FM probably using the SSTV mode PD-120.

Update June 8: There were no reports of any SSTV transmissions being received.

The transmissions are part of the Moscow Aviation Institute SSTV experiment (MAI-75) and will be made from the amateur radio station RS0ISS in the Russian ISS Service module (Zvezda). This will be the first time the experiment will use the recently installed Kenwood D710GA.

• June 8 Setup and activation 09:45-10:15 GMT, stop about 15:00 GMT*
• June 9 start about 08:35 GMT, stop about 16:15 GMT*

*Dates and times may be subject to change.

The signal should be receivable on a handheld with a 1/4 wave whip. If your rig has selectable FM filters try the wider filter for 25 kHz channel spacing.
