About ARISS: 

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that support the International Space Station: NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, JAXA, and CSA. The US Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) provide ARISS special support.  

ARISS offers an opportunity for students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with crewmembers on board the International Space Station. Teachers, parents and communities see, first hand, how Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS can energize youngsters’ interest in science, technology, and learning.

The primary goal of ARISS is to promote exploration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew members aboard the ISS and students in classrooms or informal education venues.  With the help of experienced amateur radio volunteers, ISS crews speak directly with large audiences in a variety of public forums.  Before and during these radio contacts, students, teachers, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies, and amateur radio.  For more information, see www.ariss.orgwww.ariss-eu.organd

Nuovo satellite radioamatoriale GEOSTAZIONARIO Es’Hail-2 (P4-A)


Inizio a segnalarvi, per ascoltare sulle varie frequenze il beacon e i QSO già in corso, il link di un ricevitore WebSDR, messo a disposizione da IS0GRB, attivo sul downlink del satellite radioamatoriale geostazionario Es’hail-2:

Qualche altro link, utile a chi fosse curioso attorno a questo nuovo volatile radioamatoriale, la cui copertura (tecnicamente: footprint) è questa (tnx AMSAT-DL):

In sintesi:

Es’Hail-2 (P4-A) è un satellite radioamatoriale geostazionario che permette il traffico nei modi SSB, CW e digitali e in DATV: nonostante l’apparente esotismo rappresentato dalle bande di uplink (2,4 GHz) e downlink (10 GHz), è stato concepito per permettere l’impiego di componenti a basso costo, della tipologia usata negli impianti domestici di ricezione TV commerciale via satellite; anche la trasmissione in banda stretta (modi SSB, CW e digitali) è accessibile senza grande sforzo di mezzi, con la stessa grandezza di parabola e 5 W. Inoltre, “orbita geostazionaria” significa puntamento fisso dell’antenna, quindi assenza di rotori e di sistemi d’inseguimento.

Alle prossime!
