ISS SSTV Images 11 April 2018

Want to try your hand at decoding images from space? Details of some good opportunities between now and Saturday 14th April 2018.

The last two passes of the ISS today (11th April 2018) have included some excellent SSTV images. These are being sent in celebration of Cosmonautics Day, and ARISS Russia plans to be sending images between 11th April 2018 (11:30UTC) and 14th April 2018 (until 18:20UTC)

Signals can be clearly heard on 145.800MHz FM, and decoded using the MMSSTV software package on Windows, or by holding a smartphone running an SSTV app close to a radio speaker.

Here’s what I captured from 3:18pm local time today with a rooftop colinear – these were sent from the ISS travelling at over 17.000mph, 250 miles up:
