In principle, the HamVideo DATV transmitter is permanently transmitting from Columbus, the European ISS module. The camera is not activated. These so-called “blank transmissions” are used by ground stations for fine tuning their setup. The transmit frequency is 2395 MHz.
- For different reasons, blank transmissions must be interrupted now and then.
- Scheduled “power downs” are published here.
HamVideo is off presently.
Moreover, the MagVector experiment will be conducted on Columbus from GMT 209 (Jul 28th) to GMT 214 (Aug 2nd) Ham Video will be powered down and up on the same dates, respectively.
- The HamTV Technical Team will try and answer your questions relative to the setting up and the use of a HamTV ground station.
