I apologize for the delay in publishing this week's ANS 197.

The AMSAT News Service bulletins are a free, weekly news and infor-
mation service of AMSAT North America, The Radio Amateur Satellite
Corporation. ANS publishes news related to Amateur Radio in Space
including reports on the activities of a worldwide group of Amateur
Radio operators who share an active interest in designing, building,
launching and communicating through analog and digital Amateur Radio

The news feed on http://www.amsat.org publishes news of Amateur
Radio in Space as soon as our volunteers can post it.

Please send any amateur satellite news or reports to:

ARISS Celebrates it’s 20th Anniversary through SSTV Event

In commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of ARISS, a Slow Scan
Television (SSTV) event is planned for Thursday, July 20 starting
around 21:25 UTC.  The event plans to feature images from ARISS
activities both past and present. This opportunity should cover most
of the world during the operation period.

The event plans to use a computer on the ISS Russian Segment, which
stores images that are then transmitted to Earth using the ham radio,
specifically the onboard Kenwood TM D710 transceiver. Those receiving
the images can post them at https://ariss-sstv.blogspot.com/ for
viewing by the public.

The 20 year history of ARISS will be displayed through a collection
of 12 unique images sharing the amazing accomplishments of ARISS over
the last two decades. SSTV signals will be sent to earth at 145.80
MHz using FM. The SSTV mode of transmission is expected to be PD 120
(PD 180 may be a second option). The event is expected to continue
over a two day period.

Since it’s inception, Amateur Radio on the International Space
Station (ARISS) has provided students an opportunity, through ham
radio, to engage in conversation with orbiting astronauts and
inspired many to seek careers in science, technology, engineering and
math. Consider how you might inspire students in your area through
this chance to capture images directly from space to their

Please note that the event, and any ARISS event, is dependent on
other activities, schedules and crew responsibilities on the ISS and
are subject to change at any time.

While preparations are being finalized please check for new and the
most current information on the AMSAT.org and ARISS.org websites, the
AMSAT-BB @ amsat.org, the ARISS facebook at Amateur Radio On The
International Space Station (ARISS) and ARISS twitter @ARISS_status
for the latest information on this event.

3U CubeSat with FM Transponder Launch Planned for August 16

A 3U CubeSt, FMN-1, is planned for launch on August 16 from China's
Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center located in the Gobi desert, Inner

FMN-1 will fly an FM repeater:
Uplink:   145.945 MHz FM
Downlink: 435.350 MHz FM (plus telemetry)
A 9k6 BPSK AX25 UHF downlink with an FM uplink on VHF is included.

The main mission of the satellite includes a new component experiment
and deployable solar panels.

IARU coordination information is posted at:

[ANS thanks the IARU for the above information]

An International Space Station school contact has been planned with
participants at ISS R&D conference, Washington, D.C. on 20 July. The
event is scheduled to begin at approximately 13:23 UTC. It is
recommended that you start listening approximately 10 minutes before
this time. The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and
30 seconds. The contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and W6SRJ.
The contact should be audible over the west coast of the U.S.
Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz
The contact is expected to be conducted in English.

This ARISS contact will be conducted with Youth in Aviation Program
students from the East Coast Chapter, Tuskegee Airmen, Inc.
(ECCTAI) attending the ISS Research and Development conference
as part of the conference's STEM day.  ECCTAI is one of the largest
Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. chapters in United States and serves the
Washington DC area. ECCTAI is dedicated to keeping alive the
history, achievements, and importance of the original Tuskegee
The term, "Tuskegee Airmen," refers to the men and women, who were
involved in the so-called "Tuskegee Experience", the World War II
Army Air Corps program to train African Americans to fly and maintain
combat aircraft.

ECCTAI strives to increase understanding of the
"Tuskegee Experience" by honoring the accomplishments and
the history of the men and women who participated in the
"Tuskegee Experience" and to introduce young people to the world of
aviation and space through its Youth in Aviation Program (YIAP).
YIAP motivates and inspires America's youth to strive for similar
excellence of these earlier pioneers, exposing them to aviation and
space careers (Level I), attending FAA ground school (Level II) and
receiving aircraft flight instruction or interning at an FAA
A&P (Airframe and Powerplant) facility (Level III).
