Ham Video BlankTransmissions Planning

Presently, Ham Video is transmitting permanently a "blank" image and 
no audio in configuration 3:
    * ARISS antenna 43
    * Frequency 2395 MHz
    * Symbol rate 1.3 Ms/s
Transmission will continue in this configuration till the end of the week.

Sunday March 23, Ham Video will start transmitting in configuration 
4, i.e. 2395MHz and 2.0 Ms/s.

Due to SpaceX docking and related operations, Ham Video blank 
transmissions will come to an end March 31.

The last commissioning step will be planned in April or in May 2014. 
We will keep you informed on the precise date and time.

Reports on reception of blank transmissions are very welcome.
Reports can be filed via this webpage:

Participants using the Tutioune receiving software can record as well 
as stream detailed parameters of the received signal.

Thursday March 20, three ground stations tested chained reception of 
Ham Video signals.
Jean Pierre Courjaud reported on this experiment on his website. The 
report is available at

Thank you for your participation to the Ham Video testing campaign.
