Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) has announced that continuous slow-scan television transmissions are scheduled from Saturday, February 21, at about 1030 UTC until Monday February 23, at about 2130 UTC.The AMSAT-NA website has a pass prediction calculator.
This quiet should persist for the next few days until some activity rotating onto the East limb comes more into view. This will be a relief to GPS and amateur radio operators as no disruptions are in sight.
Jeff (VE3COJ) recently put on a Techie Night antenna project involving club members. This was a VHF / UHF antenna which required some machined parts. Jeff has passed along a photo of a jig he constructed to keep the threads perfectly aligned.
