ISS SSTV Transmissions December 2021

I was made aware of the ARISS Event below :

December 21, 2021— An ARISS Slow Scan TV (SSTV) event is scheduled from the International Space Station (ISS). The event is slated to begin on December 26 at 18:25 UTC for setup and operation and continue until December 31 ending at 17:05 UTC. Dates and times subject to change due to ISS operational adjustments.

So I grabbed my RTL Stick, connected the antenna and set everything up for the automatic decoding of these SSTV images. For the tracking I use GPredict, SDR software is Gqrx and for SSTV itself I use MMSSTV. First images were received while I was asleep at 4 AM.

I cheated on one image 🙂 During the off hours, I was watching the live stream from Randy K7AGE of his reception atempt and my setup began decoding what he received. He was talking thru the event so a little “noise” in the picture. Update : Received picture #6 by myself now.

Patrick, ON4CDJ pointed me out to a template where you can add the received pictures. The templates are made by Karn Suwanrat, E20ZFD from Bangkok. Many thanks for the wonderfull template.
