I had a total of 3 passes where I could try to copy the SSTV pictures from
the ISS this morning (1429, 1604, and 1742 UTC). I was able to get a picture
on each pass, and one pass had about 1 2/3 pictures (most of one picture,
then a nice and clean picture before LOS). I have uploaded my pictures to
the ARISS SSTV picture gallery:


My 4 pictures are at:

After the 1610-1613 UTC picture (the third link above), a Russian voice came
on the 145.800 MHz frequency. I had not prepared for this, but tried some
different uplink frequencies in an attempt to make a voice QSO. This was
near my LOS time, and I was unsuccessful. I didn't hear anything that would
indicate any station was working RS0ISS.

Don't forget that there is an award for copying the current crop of SSTV
pictures, which you can apply for online:


I wish I had more chances to get more pictures, but the 3 passes this morning
were fun to be outside to see what I could get. I'm very happy to have
received a clean picture, around the middle of a 65-degree pass here. :-)
