SSTV Images August 3-4, 2019

I’ve received 6 SSTV images from the International Space Station (ISS) from August 3-4, 2019, from my amateur radio station in Bacoor, Cavite, using a DIY antenna and a portable radio. The app Robot 36 was used to decode the SSTV transmissions. For participating in the SSTV event, I was awarded a certificate.

  1. I hadn’t heard of SSTV. Is one of the astronauts doing amateur radio? On a side note, Toy maker Fisher Price made a movie camera that recorded grainy video onto audio cassette tape.

    • Yes, one of the astronauts must be a ham (many of them are) in order to operate the on-board radio and transmit these images. They do SSTV events several days in a row, a few times a year.
