While I won't be able to attend, enjoy Arizona.  That's where I am from as of a year ago.  Look into the superstition arc there if you in that area.  https://superstitionarc.org. Great group and they have a really good mesh network group that meets once a month.  Lots of activity out there on the airwaves.

He has been a tremendous asset to amateur radio in this community and beyond. So if you would like to drop by and wish him well, we should be there from 5:00 to 7:00 PM, in their glassed in event room (all though on Saturday night, I could not get the room exclusively).

Re: SSTV experiment on International Space Station (ISS) today through Sunday 2/10

Yes, there is a skew adjustment to bring the horizontal back in the MMSSTV program somewhere. I'll look again, can't rmemeber off hand where that is.

The picture from yesterday had the best path, if I was on my game, the partial would have been nearly perfect. Today's noon pass yielded some good results as well. Is there a sync setting I am missing that caused the horizontal skew?

Chris,
Congratulations on getting these images from space!
I forgot to leave my equipment turned on when I left for STL.
Wonder if I would have seen these also. When in the day did you get these? Were they on the same path? How long did that take?

Announcing ARISS/NOTA Slow Scan TV Event 

ARISS News Release                                                                                                  No. 19-02
 
Copied from AMSAT.org .  I will listening on 145.800.  If anyone hears the ISS please let us know.  73, John - NO0I
Feb 2, 2019:
 
ARISS is planning another of their popular Slow Scan Television (SSTV) experiment events. Transmissions are scheduled to begin Friday, Feb. 8 at 14:00 UTC and run through Sunday, Feb. 10 at 18:30 UTC. SSTV operations is a process by which images are sent from the International Space Station (ISS) via ham radio and received by ham operators, shortwave listeners and other radio enthusiasts on Earth, similar to pictures shared on cell phones using twitter or instagram. 
 
When this event becomes active, SSTV images will be transmitted from the ISS at the frequency of 145.80 MHz using the SSTV mode of PD120 and can be received using ham radio equipment as simple as a 2 meter handheld radio or a common shortwave or scanner receiver the covers the 2 meter ham band. After connecting the audio output of the radio receiver to the audio input of a computer running free software such as MMSSTV, the SSTV images can be displayed. 
 
Transmissions will consist of eight NASA On The Air (NOTA)
images (see https://nasaontheair.wordpress.com/). In additional, four ARISS commemorative images will also be included.
 
Once received, Images can be posted and viewed by the public at http://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/index.php. In addition, you can receive a special SSTV ARISS Award for posting your image. Once the event begins, see details at https://ariss.pzk.org.pl/sstv/ .
 

Please note that the event is dependent on other activities, schedules and crew responsibilities on the ISS and are subject to change at any time. Please check for news and the most current information on the AMSAT.org and ARISS.org websites, the AMSAT-BB@..., the ARISS facebook at Amateur Radio On The International Space Station (ARISS) and ARISS twitter @ARISS_status.

Group,
I have been suggesting at meetings and net announcements that I am preparing an exercise for February 16 at 10:00 AM. After I actually lost power for 49 hours, I have a little different view on what we should do. 
Here is the plan:
Objectives:
1. Encourage the real use of non-commercial power for the exercise. Get gas for your generator. Make sure your stand-by batteries are charged. Start up the generator and put a load on it like, a light, or TV or something besides your radio. If your computer needs AC, make sure you have that in your plan, so you can get digital as necessary. 
2. Access how well we can communicate off grid, and by simplex. (61 repeater is on emergency power, but suppose Ice brings the antenna down??)  
3. Install and try out MMSSTV for Slow Scan TV operation over your radio. You will need a sound card connection for the radio to computer. Download MMSSTV and try it our. We could practice after the net on Wednesday. Have sound card capabilities on your 2M radio, as well as HF.

Scenario:

Boone Count severely affected by Ice storm. Many power lines down. Red Cross opens warming shelters for those whose power is off. Icy roads cause traffic hazards. Cell towers are down, or overloaded.

OEM asks BCARES to get reports of roads and power outages around the county.

 

Action:

Your Family is secured and OK. (if that doesn't happen, you aren't on the radio!)


Your power is off. You must use emergency power. If that means you must operate from your vehicle in your driveway, OK. HTs will be limited if repeaters are down.

 

10:00 AM Check in on the 146.61 repeater (it has an emergency generator).

We will take voice reports from your home. (Does any one need help, like Paul needs a path to his car in the 16"snow bank. Ernest has snow blower, will travel)


61 repeater goes down, move net to HVTac-6F, or Airport UHF repeater.

Establish connection/relays to NCS.

Get Pictures from around your area, send via MMSTV 2M simplex and attached file to Winlink P-P.


Can anyone get to the Broadway Christian Church to assist with Red Cross shelter there?


--------------------end of scenario ----------------------


Anyone want to make some suggestions, especially from a real world experience? Open to ideas here and now.


Have a good weekend (listen for ISS with your MMSSTV setup!)

I monitoered the frequency today around the 12:00 pass, and the Space Station finder real-time display showed the station coming right over Columbia but no radio heard on 145.800 for me, and no picture on MMSSTV.
Maybe another pass. Going to leave a monitor on that freq for the weekend.

ARISS is planning another of their popular Slow Scan Television (SSTV) experiment events. Transmissions are scheduled to begin Friday, Feb. 8 at 14:00 UTC and run through Sunday, Feb. 10 at 18:30 UTC. SSTV operations is a process by which images are sent from the International Space Station (ISS) via ham radio and received by ham operators, shortwave listeners and other radio enthusiasts on Earth, similar to pictures shared on cell phones using twitter or instagram. 
 
When this event becomes active, SSTV images will be transmitted from the ISS at the frequency of 145.80 MHz using the SSTV mode of PD120 and can be received using ham radio equipment as simple as a 2 meter handheld radio or a common shortwave or scanner receiver the covers the 2 meter ham band. After connecting the audio output of the radio receiver to the audio input of a computer running free software such as MMSSTV, the SSTV images can be displayed. 
 
Transmissions will consist of eight NASA On The Air (NOTA)
images (see https://nasaontheair.wordpress.com/). In additional, four ARISS commemorative images will also be included.
 
Once received, Images can be posted and viewed by the public at http://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/index.php. In addition, you can receive a special SSTV ARISS Award for posting your image. Once the event begins, see details at https://ariss.pzk.org.pl/sstv/ .
 

Please note that the event is dependent on other activities, schedules and crew responsibilities on the ISS and are subject to change at any time. Please check for news and the most current information on the AMSAT.org and ARISS.org websites, the AMSAT-BB@..., the ARISS facebook at Amateur Radio On The International Space Station (ARISS) and ARISS twitter @ARISS_status.

ISS sighting information. One pass per day it appears for our area. https://spotthestation.nasa.gov/sightings/view.cfm?country=United_States&region=Missouri&city=Columbia#.XF35Ojp7m70 Gary, I'm not sure about Android specific apps, but you could record the audio and play it into MMSSTV on a Winders PC.https://hamsoft.ca/pages/mmsstv.php
