Slow Scan TV from the International Space Station 8/9/10 Feb 2019

On the first day of this event I received no signal on the first couple of passes so assumed it was delayed or cancelled. At the time I was just using my dual band vertical so not the best setup. Saturday the 9th I was tied up with other things so didn't give SSTV a second thought. Then early Sunday I saw some good SSTV pictures posted on Twitter and heard there had been a technical problem in the Russian module; all it seems was sorted now.

Keen to see what I could download I went into the shack and fired up the RX and PC; during the next four passes I got some reasonable results given my less than ideal antenna. Signals were very strong but I lost out when the ISS was directly overhead and in the antenna null point.

I've put some of the pictures in my photo gallery and you can see them here.

If you're interested in SSTV pictures sent from the ISS during previous events you can view the ARISS Gallery here.
