This is David EA4SG from Madrid Spain.
Just listening on 145.800 for the planned SSTV transmission, just some
minutes ago at 10:53 UTC I copied a very strong intermitent signal
coming from the ISS direction. I call the ISS telling them that I was
listening and offering my help if needed and one of the two russians
cosmonauts took the microphone and answered to my call. After the report
I asked if they are going to send SSTV and he told me that they will be
sending the pictures the whole day. Then he QRT. Very happy for my voice
QSO with RS0ISS. 3 minutes later and until LOS a long carrier, strong
signal but no modulation at all.
Carrier was there until LOS so I could not had the chance to inform them
that the expected SSTV modulation was missing.
Just for your information.
