October 2020 SSTV reception from the ISS

An ARISS Slow Scan TV (SSTV) event was scheduled from the International Space Station (ISS) for early October. The event began on October 4 at 14:00 UTC for setup and operation and continue until October 8 ending at 19:15 UTC.
The main theme of this collection of images is Satellites.
Slow Scan Television (SSTV) is transmitted by the ARISS Russia Team from the amateur radio station in the Russian Service Module of the International Space Station using the callsign RS0ISS. The equipment used is a Kenwood D710 transceiver running about 25 watts output which provides a very strong signal enabling reception using simple equipment.

Twelve different images were sent on 145.800 MHz FM (12 kHz bandwidth) using the SSTV mode PD120, with a 2 minute off-time which will allow more images to be received in an orbital pass – maximum 3, usually 2.

This is my collection from this period.

Some of the pictures came in multiple times, some just once, and incomplete. Nevertheless, this session was by far the most successful, because I manage to receive all the pictures, regardless the quality 😎 .
I even got a(nother) diploma for this.
