Welcome on board

The International Space Station, presently nearly complete, is permanently manned by teams of astronauts and cosmonauts. Most have an amateur radio licence.

Amateur Radio societies from the ISS partner countries, in USA, Canada, Russia, Europe and Japan, have set up ARISS - Amateur Radio on International Space Station.

ARISS is a volunteering working group devoted to develop and put into operation the onboard amateur radio station. ARISS-Europe is the European branch of ARISS.

HAM TVA DATV (digital amateur television) transmitter is installed in the Columbus module of the International Space Station (ISS). This transmitter is dubbed “Ham Video”.

Main characteristics :

Downlink frequencies: 2.422 GHz, 2.437 GHz
Contingency frequencies : 2.369 GHz, 2.395 GHz
DVB-S like signal (without PMT tables)
Symbol rates: 1.3 Ms/s, 2.0 Ms/s
FEC : ½
Video PID = 256
Audio PID = 257
Antennas: ARISS 41 and ARISS 43 patch antennas on the nadir of Columbus
RF radiated power : approximately 10 W EIRP
Ham Video operates with a Canon XF-305 camera.

Commissioning

Commissioning of the Ham Video transmitter was performed April – March 2014. All four frequencies and two symbol rates were checked with each of the two antennas.

For each commissioning step, US astronaut Michael Hopkins transmitted video and audio during a pass over the Matera ground station. The Matera VLBI station is located at the Italian Space Ageny’s ‘Centro di Geodesia Spaziale G. Colombo’ (CGS) near Matera, a small town in the south of Italy.

The final commissioning test was performed by JAXA astronaut Koichi wakata, using configuration 4 for optimum results:

2.395 GHz
2.0 Ms/s
The signals were received by several ground stations and streamed to the BATC server (British Amateur Television Club).

Ham TV streams are identified ISS1 – 5. The BATC server is available at http://www.batc.tv

Blank transmission

When "Blank Transmission" is operational, Ham Video transmits a continuous DATV signal with the camera turned off. Ground stations receive a black image and audio at zero level. This Blank Transmission will go on till August 6, 2014.

A « blank » DVB-S signal contains all the data of normal DVB-S. The information tables describing the content and the content itself, i.e. the video (black) and the audio (silence), are the same as for the image and the sound produced by a camera.

Receiving a black image and silent sound may seem uninteresting but, from a technical perspective, the digital signal offers an important source of information.

Even without decoding, several measurements of the received signal provide valuable information:

analogic HF signal strength (dBm)
analogic Signal/Noise ratio (dB)
digital Signal/Noise ratio = MER (dB)
error/correction ratio = Vber, Cber …
validation of the received transport stream = TS

Reception Reports
Ground stations with S-band capability can provide valuable information.

Basic data such as:

noise level without signal
AOS time (UTC)
maximum signal level during pass
LOS time (UTC)
can be reported by ground stations without the need of DATV hard- and software. A reporting facility is available here : Ham Video Reporting

Windows computer with TechnoTrend TT S2-1600 card and Tutioune software
A Windows computer with TT S2-1600 receiver card can be used for Ham Video reception.

The Tutioune software, developed by Jean Pierre Courjaud F6DZP, measures and records the Ham Video signals second per second:

HF signal level
digital Signal/Noise level = MER (dB)
error/correction = Vber
validation of the received transport stream = TS
The recorded file can be examined and forwarded to ARISS.

Better even, the data can be forwarded during an ISS pass to the TiouneMonitor on the www.vivadatv.org website. In other words, the data can be observed worldwide, real time.

Tutioune also shows the constellations during signal reception (see HamTV Bulletin #4). The TS stream can be recorded, but this is less interesting since richer information is already available.

Tutioune also decodes the DVB tables and provides the PIDs and the channel name (« HAMTV ») recovered from theSDT table.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
(Updated 07-06-2017)
 
Schools and Youth organizations, interested in setting up an ARISS radiocontact with an astronaut onboard the International Space Station, are invited to submit an Application and an educational project.
The next submission window extends from September 1 to October 31, 2017. The school selection will take place in December 2017.
The space conversation will tentatively be scheduled in the period extending from July to December 2018.
Please see details in the right side column.
The Application is to be addressed by email to : school.selection.manager@ariss-eu.org
 
Please, do not wait till the last days of the Application Window to submit your requests
An ARISS Mentor will guide you through the selection process. If your project is selected, he will help you prepare for the contact and a successful event. He will assist you all along the procedure.

General

The space agencies entrust ARISS with the task of implementing amateur contacts for schools, allowing students to put questions to astronauts on board the International Space Station and receive their answer direct from space.

Candidate schools shall prepare a space oriented educative and submit it, together with an "Application" document, to the ARISS School Selection Manager Francesco De Paolis, IKØWGF. The documents shall be e-mailed to school.selection.manager@ariss-eu.org

General

Candidate schools shall prepare a space oriented educative and submit it, together with an "Application" document, to the ARISS School Selection Manager Francesco De Paolis, IKØWGF. The documents shall be e-mailed to school.selection.manager@ariss-eu.org

Selected schools are put on a waiting list. There are waiting lists in each of the ARISS Regions: USA, Canada, Europe (extended to Africa and the Middle East), Russia, Far East and Australia.

The Application form can be downloaded from this webpage. The list of pending applications for the European region is also available on this webpage. The waiting time is more or less 1 year, depending on the kind of contact. Indeed, ARISS School Contacts come in two flavours: direct or telebridge.

Direct contact : amateur radio volunteers set up a satellite radio station in the school and the contact with the International Space Station is established during a pass of the ISS over the school.

Telebridge contact : ARISS has a dozen of dedicated "telebridge" ground stations covering the world. These highly performing radio stations are maintained and operated by experienced amateur radio volunteers. For a "telebridge" School Contact, the radio contact with the Space Station is established during a pass of the ISS over one of the ARISS "telebridge" stations and the signals are relayed to and from the school per telephone line.

For the students, a direct radio contact is more exciting as they see the operator handling the radio in their school. Therefore there are more requests for direct contacts than for "telebridge" contacts. Nevertheless, because of their worldwide coverage, there are more opportunities to set up "telebridge" School Contacts than direct contacts. For this reason, and also because there are less requests, the waiting time is shorter for a "telebridge" contact than for a direct contact.

Moreover, it is to be noted that ARISS School Contacts are also requested by the Space Agencies, and these requests have higher priority.

From statistics covering several years, we observe that, in the ARISS Region Europe/Africa/Middle-East, every year 20 to 25 ARISS School Contacts can be performed, direct or "telebridge".

How ARISS School Contacts are prepared and planified

Crews on the International Space Station stay on board for six months. For each of these "Expeditions", the ARISS Operations Committee upgrades schools from the regional waiting lists to the "To Do" list. Several parameters are to be taken into account, such as the number of contacts authorized by the agencies, the presence onboard of licensed astronauts, the chronology of submitted Applications.

ARISS Operations Committee members meet weekly per teleconference. For each school on the "To Do" list a volunteering Mentor is nominated. The Mentor takes up the responsibility to prepare the school and the local radio amateurs for the upcoming radio contact. Important aspects of this preparation are detailed in the "ARISS School Contacts procedure" available on this webpage.

IMPORTANT : Schools accepting to share the ARISS radio contact take priority. European mentors invite schools to choose a partner school and to share the ARISS event with another school on the waiting list.

When an ARISS School Contact is scheduled in the European region, we circulate an announcement to the subscribers of the ARISS-Europe News Bulletin. Interested parties are invited to listen to the astronaut answering the questions prepared by the students. Radioamateurs can easily receive the radio signal transmitted from the ISS when it is in range of their station.

When a direct ARISS School Contact cannot be done, the option is to set up a "telebridge". In that case, the radio contact is performed by one of the dedicated ARISS ground stations, located in the USA, Europe, Hawaii, Australia and Argentina. The up- and downlink audio is relayed between the school and the ground station per phoneline. The audio of telebridge contacts is mostly distributed real time by Echolink and IRLP.

Reports of ARISS School Contacts are available on the ARISS-Europe Archive page. Some recordings and pictures are attached to the archived ARISS-Europe News Bulletins and can be downloaded.

The complete process for a successful ARISS School Contact is explained in the ARISS School Contacts procedure (see sidebar).

IMPORTANT : Please read carefully the documents available in the right column. Technical requirements for the setting up of a radio station (direct contact) are given in item 4bis), which is a Zoho page. To edit this Zoho page, click button in upper left corner. There are three Zoho sheets included for checking your setup.
