ISS Amateur Radio Status: April 5, 2009 By Miles Mann WF1F,
Slow Scan TV Status, only 2 days left
MAREX-MG News www.marexmg.org Manned Amateur Radio Experiment
Hello all: I just talked to Charles on ISS (April 5, 2009, 17:59 UTC). He said he would be coming home Wednesday April 8th. This leaves you with 2 more days of voice and SSTV contacts. The Amateur Radio station will be turned OFF on Wednesday for crew departure preparation and undocking.
Keep you SSTV systems running in Automatic receive mode and save those pictures.
Charles has said that he is short on batteries so he is only sending images manually when he has time.
Current Image list (from October and November 2009) I moved the Marex list to a new server, hope you enjoy the images. http://www.marexmg.org/fileshtml/issimages.html
