PSAT2 Satellite SSTV Images

PSAT2 transmits SSTV images at 435.360 MHz (UHF) which may be received using just a DIY Moxon-Yagi satellite antenna, a UHF radio, and a decoder such as Robot 36 running on a smartphone (Android).

Here are some images decoded on May 1 and May 5, 2020, as PSAT2 passes over the Philippines.

SSTV transmission in PSAT2 is only active in daytime. Doppler effect compensation is necessary to properly receive the transmission. Tune your radio from 435.370 MHz down to 435.350 MHz from start to end of the pass. You may decode up to two SSTV images per pass.
