THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION CELEBRATES ITS 20TH ANNIVERSARY WITH A SSTV EVENT

In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of ARISS, a Slow Scan Televesion (SSTV) was planned on July 20 and July 21, 2017. SSTV signals were sent to the earth on 145.80 MHz FM. The SSTV mode of transmission was PD 120. During the passage above Europe could I receive with my Kenwood R-5000 receiver, linked to my RX SSTV program on my computer, the pictures below.

QSL FROM RADIO FREE ASIA

Radio Free Asia is really a quick answerer of reception reports! After less than one week you get post back. This time I sent a report for a broadcast in Tibetan from the IBB broadcasting station in Kuwait. A QSL card with the image of this broadcasting station in Kuwait is still used until August 2017. The QSL address is qsl@rfa.
