ISS SSTV! December 2017 Pass Simulations - 9 USA passes

The ISS will be sending Slow Scan TV images on December 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th (not 24/7! Watch video for details or see schedule below). I made a quick video screen capture of Orbitron satellite tracker so you can see if you'll be in range of the ISS when it's sending the images. There will be nine passes over the United States.

OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:
MAI-75 in December
Looks like the MAI-75 folks have scheduled some SSTV activity during specific periods each day from Dec 6-8. The times correlate to a small number of passes each day in range of Moscow.

Dec 6, 2017
Setup and power on – 13:40-14:20 UTC
Power off – 17:05-17:15 UTC

Dec 7, 2017
Power on – 13:45-13:55 UTC
Power off – 17:30-17:40 UTC

Dec 8, 2017
Power on – 14:05-14:15 UTC

Power off and stow – 17:00-17:10 UTC

*UPDATE - Nov 28*
Seems the system will be put through some extended testing from Dec 5 starting around 15:00 UTC and running until 09:00 UTC on Dec 6. Test images will be used during this period. This will provide near global coverage if all works well. The MAI-75 schedule remains unchanged at this point.

http://bit.ly/YouTubeSComms

Part 2 - https://youtu.be/pU-MeObucwU

This is a recording of a Facebook livestream I did of a Friday night SO-50 pass (2017-06-03 0100 UTC). QRZ Now, which has 180k followers on Facebook, shared it to their page and the livestream consequently reached 189 viewers simultaneously.

Also, SO-50 had a max elevation of 80 degrees for me in Cary, North Carolina, almost straight up, and since it was right over the east coast of the United States (the most populated part of the U.S.), It was a busy and exciting pass.

Thanks to all the stations who contacted me or tried to contact me:

KI4SIY - Charleston, South Carolina
N8HM - Washington D.C.
W4FS - Efland, North Carolina (only 40 miles/60 km from me)
KK4FEM - Auburndale, Florida
WU2M - Gloversville, New York
WB3CSY - Lancaster, Pennsylvania
VA3NNA - Toronto, Ontario
KB1PVH - Sutton, Massachusetts
