In addition to the worldwide event listed above, MAI-75 will be planning SSTV transmissions for a few orbits of ISS that are in range of Moscow. Times are roughly from 14:00-19:00 UTC on April 1 and 2. The passes look reasonably good for the UK :)

The chances are actually pretty good - the passes are favourable for the UK both days during the activation period. The main problem is that the MAI-75 images tend to be pretty boring! :D

Theres also a worldwide event around the 12th April, I'll post exact details once I find them

Folk might like to apply for a new SSTV diploma being offered by AMSAT Argentina

Only 2 good images received here during the visible passes. By a dint of bad timing the same images were being transmitted on all the passes! :(

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Whilst I didn't have the equipment running, there has been a highly visible pass about five minutes ago. running roughly NNE to SSW at high elevation (60+)

I'll go find a list for the next few days.

No ISS SSTV on atm. The two last sets of SSTV activations have been a waste of time thanks to a foul up in the settings anyway. Strong signals but very low levels of modulation.
