XW-1 SSTV

17:53 UTC 20 deg pass
during a low elevation pass, Mike DK3WN and Henk, PA3GUO made the very first SSTV contact via HO68 – linear transponder. Images were transmitted between the two radio stations in Germany and The Netherlands. Signals were transmitted to HO-68, which was 1200km above earth and about 8000km distant from the radio amateur stations.

  1. Hi Mike
    can you tell me,please, the frequency of your sstv test on Ho-68? Sometime I am calling sstv via OSCAR7 mode B,but I will try via Ho-68 too. I need to use the tone 67 hz? Excellent SSTV transmission with PA3GUO !! 73′ Michele
