Dollar-for-Dollar Match on your ARISS Donation Thru June 17, 2019

During the ARISS Forum at the Hamvention, it was announced, that
between now and June 17, that an anonymous donor will equally match
one dollar for each dollar donated up to $10,000. 

Here is an excellent opportunity to get the most from your donations 
to the ARISS FundRazr. The FundRazr Project was initiated to raise 
$150,000 towards the ARISS Radio Upgrade on ISS. To date 90
contributors have donated $24,840 to the campaign, about 17% of the
goal. $10,000 of your dollars, donated now, will raise that total to
$44,840, including the matching funds. It would be great if we could
actually achieve one-third of our goal ($50,000) by mid-June. 
Please donate today at

Keith Pugh, W5IU SK

ARISS Friends,

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of ARISS team 
member Keith Pugh, W5IU.   Keith spent his life on Earth as a true
gentlemen, serving others, enjoying friendship and relationships, and
supporting his passions: amateur radio, flying and most importantly 
his love of God and all the great things on this Earth.

Those that knew Keith considered him a Texan through and through.  
But truth be told, he was born and raised in Dodge City, Kansas.  
After college, he left Kansas and settled permanently in the 
Fort Worth, Texas area where he picked up that Texas accent and 
welcomed us into his world.  And it is in Texas where he passed away 
on May 24, 2019.  

Active with AMSAT and Amateur Radio satellites since the 1980's, 
Keith jump-started his passion for amateur radio on human spaceflight 
missions in 1991, when the Space Station Mir was in orbit and Soviet 
ham radio operators were talking to the world-wide amateur radio 
community.  Keith helped install a Soviet Space Exhibit in Fort Worth 
in 1991 and he hosted Musa Manarov U2MIR's visit to the USA.  
Ultimately, Keith joined the ARISS team in 2004, where he has 
provided support as one of our operations leaders, technical 
mentoring numerous schools and ARISS contact organizations and 
providing his warm friendship and guidance to all in our team.  Keith 
also attended several of our ARISS International meetings, including 
our 2008 ARISS-I meeting in Moscow and Kaluga. 

Many of us were aware of Keith's cancer.  But, Keith being Keith, he 
kept most of his pain and suffering to himself.  He remained joyful 
and humble until his death.  In fact, just a few days before his 
death--this past Tuesday, Keith signed into the ARISS International 
teleconference, apologizing that he came in late.  None of us knew 
this would be our last dialog with such a close friend and 
outstanding member of our team.

As I stated, one of Keith's passions was flying as a private pilot.  
In fact for one of his vacations he flew a Cessna aircraft around 
Australia.  As a fellow pilot, I know that Keith must have been an 
avid fan of the poem "High Flight" written by John Gillespie Magee
Jr.   Paraphrasing this poem:

While we mourn the loss of our good friend, Keith Pugh, let us 
joyfully reflect on the fact that Keith has

Slipped the surly bonds of Earth

And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;

Topped the windswept heights with easy grace

And, while with silent lifting mind, Keith has trod

The high unsurpassed sanctity of Space,

Put out his hand and touched the face of God.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Keith Pugh, W5IU SK as he touches 
the face of God.

73,  Frank Bauer, KA3HDO

AMSAT Payload on ESEO Activated

ESA have just released a new mission update for the ESEO Mission. It 
can be seen at 

FUNcube is delighted that the BPSK telemetry transmitter on its 
payload was enabled for a period of just over 200 minutes in orbit.

Although they were not able to announce this activation in advance, 
more than ten stations around the world successfully received the 
telemetry on 145.895 MHz and submitted it to the FUNcube Data 
Warehouse. They are very grateful to them for their support.

Over 50 channels of Real Time and Whole Orbit Data were collected. 
For example, a number of on-board temperatures which covers the 
period from 11:58 to 13:36 UTC.  The very last frame received was 
captured by PQ2HX in Brazil at around 14:17 UTC.

They are keenly awaiting further possibilities to exercise more of 
the payload as soon as this becomes possible but, in the meantime, 
is good to know that all the telemetry channels reported nominal

ARISS/SAREX Teacher wins AIAA Achievement Award 

Upper St. Clair High School Education Coordinator Patricia Palazzolo
in Upper St. Clair, PA was one of three recipients who received
recently, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics
(AIAA) Foundation Educator Achievement Award.  This award recognizes
K-12 educators for their outstanding work promoting STEM subjects
among America's youth. Patricia's students have been involved in ham
radio contacts with astronauts on both the Space Shuttle and the ISS.
She and her students presented a paper on her STEM programs at the
2004 AMSAT Symposium in Washington DC. The article about her award is
at: https://tinyurl.com/ANS146-AIAAAward 

Her school's website write-up is at:

Her AMSAT Symposium paper is posted at: 

Patricia Palazzolo is a grade 7 - 12 Gifted Coordinator in the Upper
St. Clair (PA) School District, but is probably best known as
"Pennsylvania Teacher-in-Space." In 1985, she was named Pennsylvania
finalist for what was to become the ill-fated Challenger mission. In
that role, she has addressed over 50,000 Americans and conducted
teacher workshops from Colorado to New Brunswick. Her students have
sent sea-monkeys and Chia Pet seeds into orbit with John Glenn,
spoken with cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev while he circled the Earth as
the first Russian on the American space shuttle, and contacted
astronaut Mike Fincke on the International Space Station via amateur
radio. Pat was the 2002 recipient of the Anne Morrow Lindbergh K-12
Aerospace Educator Award.

ESEO Mission Hampered by Anomaly

After having started its in orbit commissioning, since a few weeks 
the ESEO mission has been experiencing an anomaly. The educational 
path of the ESEO students however continues.

The ESEO AMSAT-UK radio payload was successfully activated in the 
morning of 12 April 2019, and it started transmitting its payload 
telemetry. These data were received by many radio amateurs around 
the globe.

Unfortunately, a few hours after the AMSAT-UK activation, ESEO 
suddenly started to behave anomalously, repeatedly sending the same 
notification message to  ground, which normally should have been sent 
only once.  The continuous use of the radio transmitter to send these 
notifications, in combination with the AMSAT-UK activation, led to a 
temporary discharge of the battery when the spacecraft was in
eclipse. This under-voltage then triggered the protections to 
automatically shut-down the AMSAT-UK payload.

A clear reason for the anomaly has not been identified yet, but the 
most accredited hypothesis is a possible radiation effect on a memory 
cell, which in principle could be recovered through an automatic 
reboot of the on-board computer (data handling system), that cannot 
however be anticipated.

In the meanwhile, until this malfunction is resolved, ESEO cannot 
receive tele-commands and its in-orbit commissioning cannot continue.
However, ESEO can still transmit correctly. Every 5 minutes the 
spacecraft sends to ground general data on its health status. The 
data show that the satellite’s power subsystem is able to correctly 
recharge the batteries of the spacecraft, and that the electrical 
and thermal parameters of the satellite do not show significant 

These data are systematically stored in a database and are accessible 
on-line to the ESEO students for educational purposes.

The students of the University of Bologna, responsible of the ESEO 
Mission Control Centre, in Forlì (Italy), commented: “We are looking 
forward to the in-depth analysis of all the ESEO telemetry which we 
are receiving regularly. This will offer us a lot to learn,” they 
continued. “Every unexpected difficulty we had to deal with so far 
during the ESEO mission operations pushed us to stretch our knowledge 
in order to find the way to resolve it. Now we are looking forward 
to resolve also the current issues to be able to complete the 
in-orbit commissioning."

“On 28 May 2019 we will hold a dedicated webinar for all the ESEO 
student teams,” said Piero Galeone, responsible of the ESA Academy 
programme of which ESEO is a part. “The objective is to illustrate 
and explain the current status of the mission. This will be 
followed in July 2019 by a whole workshop focused on the ESEO 
in-flight experience, in order to enhance the students’ learning 
opportunities at maximum extent.”

ARISS Hamvention Forum Slides Available for Download

Did you know that ARISS is the longest continuously running payload 
on the ISS?  Or, that ARISS is poised to follow astronauts to the 
Lunar Gateway mission?  How about that students relay APRS messages 
through ARISS to control robots thousands of miles away?

These are some of the interesting facts that approximately 150 
people attending the ARISS forum at Hamvention learned.

In addition to ARISS staff presentations, forum attendees also
enjoyed an appearance by ARRL CEO Howard Michel, WB2ITX as well as 
NASA Flight Surgeon Keith Brandt, WD9GET and broadcast personality 
Gordon West, WB6NOA.

The forum was conducted by Frank Bauer, KA3HDO who is ISS Ham Radio 
Program Manager & Principal Investigator, ARISS International Chair, 
and AMSAT V.P. for Human Spaceflight Programs.  Frank has made the 
entire set of slides available for viewing.  You can download the

ARISS SSTV Planned Over Russia for Moscow Aviation Institute

A Russian MAI-SSTV event is planned for Wednesday, June 5 from  
12:00-16:00 UTC and June 6 from 11:30-15:30 UTC.  Transmissions are 
expected to be at 145.800 MHz in SSTV mode PD120. Based on the times 
received, SSTV signals are not expected over N. America. 

This event uses a computer in the ISS Russian Segment, which stores 
images that are then transmitted to Earth using the ARISS Amateur 
Radio station located in the Service Module which employs the 
Kenwood TM-D710E transceiver.

Amateur radio operators and other radio enthusiasts are invited to 
post the images they receive at 

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

Online radios can be used to receive signals from the International 
Space Station at
SUWS WebSDR located Farnham near London http://farnham-sdr.com/
and R4UAB WebSDR located European Russia http://websdr.r4uab.ru/.
