ARISS Russia is planning a special Slow Scan Television (SSTV) event April
11-14 from the International Space Station in celebration of Cosmonautics
Day.

The transmissions are to begin on April 11 at 11:30 UT and run through
April 14 ending at 18:20 UT.

Supporting this event is a computer on the ISS Russian Segment, which
stores images that are then transmitted to Earth using amateur radio,
specifically the onboard Kenwood TM-D710E transceiver.

Transmitted images will be from the Interkosmos project period of the
Soviet space program https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interkosmos

The transmissions which were coordinated with the ARISS scheduling team,
will be made on 145.800 MHz FM using the PD-120 SSTV mode.

Note the ISS transmissions use the 5 kHz deviation FM standard rather than
the narrow 2.5 kHz used in Europe. If your transceiver has selectable FM
filters try using the wider filter. Handheld transceivers generally have a
single wide filter fitted as standard and you should get good results
outdoors using just a 1/4 wave whip antenna.

Jeri Ellsworth AI6TK will be AMSAT/TAPR Banquet Speaker during Hamvention

Jerri Ellsworth AI6TK

Entrepreneur and electrical engineer Jeri Ellsworth AI6TK will be guest
speaker at the AMSAT/TAPR banquet which takes place during Hamvention 2018
in May.

The twelfth annual joint AMSAT/TAPR Banquet will be held on Friday, May 18
at the Kohler Presidential Banquet Center, 4572 Presidential Way,
Kettering, OH 45429 (just south of Dayton). Doors open at 6:30 PM for a
cash bar with the buffet dinner served at 7:00 PM.

Jeri Ellsworth, AI6TK, will present on her innovative ideas and adventures
in Amateur Radio. Jeri is an American entrepreneur, self-taught engineer,
and an autodidact computer chip designer and inventor.

She gained notoriety in 2004 for creating a complete Commodore 64 system on
a chip housed within a joystick, called C64 Direct-to-TV. That computer in
a joystick could run 30 video games from the

early 1980s, and at peak, sold over 70,000 units in a single day via the
QVC shopping channel.

Ellsworth co-founded CastAR (formerly Technical Illusions) in 2013 and
stayed with the company until its closure on June 26, 2017. In 2016, she
passed all three amateur radio exams, earned her Amateur Extra license, and
received the AI6TK callsign. This has now launched new adventures into
Amateur Radio. She has been featured in January 2017 QST and in YouTube
videos from Quartzfest earlier this year. Jeri has been given a free hand
to speak on whatever topic she wishes (as long as its amateur radio,
somewhat).
