ARISSat-1 Still Transmitting

ARISSat-1 is getting nearer the atmosphere but is still functional and the orbital passes have moved back into daylight over the UK so set up the gear again this week to try to get some more SSTV images. Results have been a bit poor, but did get the back end of a very nice image this afternoon clearly showing some cloud formations in the atmosphere.

Now got an excuse this weekend to try out the nice new yagi that we won in the prize draw at the Hamfest at the start of the October that is still sitting in the box! It sounds pretty good.

Oh and as I threatened too I have joined AMSAT-UK, now just saving up for my FunCube Dongle.
