To celebrate that 60 years ago NASA was founded, the International Space Station (ISS) sent out on 27, 28 and 29 october 2018 Slow-Scan Television (SSTV) pictures. The frequency was 145.800 MHz and the used mode was ‘PD120’. To receive the SSTV images from space I used a homemade cross dipole antenna. Really a fascinating activity to see those photos appear on your computer screen. See on YouTube: https://youtu.be/7VTIOKnZrC4.
Below some beautiful photos I received on 29 October 2018 when the ISS passed over Europe.
