SLOW SCAN TELEVISION TRANSMISSION FROM THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION - ISS

On 2 and 3 April 2018 there were Slow-Scan Television (SSTV) broadcasts of the International Space Station (ISS). The frequency was 145.800 MHz and the used mode was ‘PD120’. To receive some SSTV images or partial pictures from space I used the cross dipole antenna. The most beautiful photos were on 3 April at 18.00 UTC when the ISS passed over Belgium.
