December 28, 2021



Hello ST2NH,
This ARISS SSTV event is dedicated to "Present ISS Space Agency Contributions to Lunar Exploration, Past, Present and Future.” The SSTV slides provide some historical context to several missions, some not well known, that significantly contributed to Lunar Exploration either from a technology or scientific perspective. General intention of the ARISS SSTV slides is to provide aspects to the observers that may not be known before and could offer a base for own investigations on space history.

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that support the International Space Station (ISS). The primary goal of ARISS is to promote exploration of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics topics. ARISS does this by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew members aboard the ISS and students. Before and during these radio contacts, students, educators, parents, and communities take part in hands-on learning activities tied to space, space technologies, and amateur radio.

Hello Nader Omer -ST2NH,
This time the SSTV images series is dedicated to radio amateur astronauts and cosmonauts and their activities on board of the Space Shuttle, Mir Space station and International Space Station. The ARISS SSTV Award presents  three special people.
On the left: Musa Manarov U2MIR - Russian cosmonaut who launched amateur radio equipment on board of the Mir space station. He made the first amateur radio communication in October 1988. Consequently, the MAREX (Mir Amateur Radio Experiment) and MIREX (Mir International Amateur radio EXperiment) programs were created.
Center: Sergey Krikalyov U5MIR - Russian cosmonaut, member of the Expedition 1 on the International Space Station. In November 2000 launched an amateur radio station on board of the ISS. This event was the beginning of ARISS (Amateur Radio on the International Space Station) school contacts. Many cosmonauts and astronauts also conducted unscheduled radio communications, which made a lot of joy for the radio amateurs around the world.

On the right: American Owen Garriott W5LFL who was the first astronaut and amateur radio operator to take with him on the space shuttle Columbia (STS-9 mission in 1983) amateur radio equipment and conducted radio communications with radio amateurs on Earth. Hereby the SAREX program (Shuttle Amateur Radio Experiment later called Space Amateur Radio Experiment) was created.

Greetings - Slawek SQ3OOK
