ISS HamTV Frequencies Announced
Plans continue for the addition of digital amateur television (DATV) capability aboard the International Space Station. The project is designed to add a video component to school contacts already conducted by ISS crew members through ARISS, the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station program. The DATV transmitter will operate on 2240.0 and 2437.0 MHz, according to the AMSAT News Service. The HamTV equipment is scheduled to be sent up to the station on a supply mission currently scheduled for early August.
