Sounds from Amateur Radio Missions on Space Ships and Space Stations 2019 - today

This section is dedicated to manned Amateur Radio missions in Space Ships and Space Stations. Many thanks to all the Astronauts and Cosmonauts who spend part of their free time in space operating the Amateur Radio equipment and thus provide us here on Earth so much excitement and fun !

on ISS

#25544

The malfunctioning Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) “HamTV” transmitter now is back on Earth for repair or replacement, and it likely won’t be until sometime in 2020 at the earliest that Amateur Radio TV (DATV) capability will be restored to the orbiting laboratory. Onboard repair was not possible. Whether the design error of the wrong VPID will be fixed too is questionable. In order to bring back the unit to the ISS as quick as possibly without a complete re-qualification only minor changes must be made to the unit. In any case it is not expected to have the unit back operational before 2020.
