On Sunday, March 23, Ham Video will start transmitting in configuration 4, i.e. 2395 MHz and 2.0 Ms/s.

Due to SpaceX docking and related operations, Ham Video blank transmissions will come to an end March 31.

The last commissioning step will be planned in April or in May 2014. We will keep you informed on the precise date and time.

Reports on reception of blank transmissions are very welcome. Reports can be filed via this webpage: http://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_FSTV/submit.php

Participants using the Tutioune receiving software can record as well as stream detailed parameters of the received signal. Please see: http://www.vivadatv.org/

On Thursday, March 20, three ground stations tested chained reception of Ham Video signals. Jean Pierre Courjaud reported on this experiment on his website. The report is available at
