This video was recorded this evening from my QTH as ARISSat-1 passed under Australia.
Video captured on Canon EOS DSLR and edited in OpenShot for your enjoyment.
This is the transponder file I made up for GPredict as it not have one for the ARISSat-1 satellite.
Just copy and pasted the below info into a text file and save it to ~/.config/Gpredict/trsp/37772.trsp
[Mode V Digitalker (Voices Messages and Telemetry)] DOWN_LOW=145950000 MODE=FM [Mode V Imaging (Robot 36 SSTV from onboard cameras)] DOWN_LOW=145950000 MODE=SSTV in FM carrier [Mode V Telemetry (1000 baud (400 baud backup))] DOWN_LOW=145920000 MODE=BPSK 1000 bps [Mode U/V (B) Linear Transponder] UP_LOW=435742000 UP_HIGH=435758000 DOWN_LOW=145922000 DOWN_HIGH=145938000 INVERT=true [Mode V TLM Beacon (CW-2, BPSK-1000)] DOWN_LOW=145919000 MODE=CW [Mode V TLM Beacon (CW-1, BPSK-400)] DOWN_LOW=145939000 MODE=CW
Now sit back and enjoy listening and transmitting to the ARISSat-1
Satellite Detail – ARISSat-1
Point your Android phone at the sky and see actual satellites flying overhead.
This is a nice satellite app that a friend pointed out to me. The app is surprisingly fast, and has advantages of having the camera on to help find and line up satellites.
