ARISS Says Commemorative SSTV Event Update May Happen on January 16


Slow-scan television transmissions marking the 15th anniversary of the first Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) contacts have now been tentatively rescheduled for Saturday, January 16. The transmissions will be in PD120 mode.

The ARISS event had to be postponed in late December due to “complications in planning,” ARISS announced at the time.

The first ISS crew conducted its inaugural ham radio contact from NA1SS in November 2000. The first ARISS school contact took place the following month. ARISS will post more information as it becomes available.
