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 presently transmitting.
If Orbital 8 launches on time (Nov 11) then capture and berthing would occur on Nov 13. Ham Video would be off for several hours that day.
- The HamTV Technical Team will try and answer your questions relative to the setting up and the use of a HamTV ground station.
