J43VHF High Altitude Balloon launch PDF Print Email
Thursday, 22 May 2014 20:04

On 11 May 2014, a team of seven Greek amateur radio operators under the special callsign J43VHF, launched from the area of Megalopolis (KM17BK) a payload of amateur radio equipment with the aid of a High Altitude Balloon (HAB).

The HAB used was a 1500gr meteorological balloon filled with helium gas, along with a 3ft parachute.

The payload weighed 1Kg and consisted of the following HAM equipment:

- 10m 500mW home-brew CW beacon with sleeve dipole antenna.
- 2m 500mW home-brew CW beacon with open dipole antenna.
- 2m 500mW home-brew APRS transmitter with open dipole antenna.
- 3 sets of LiPo batteries.

The HAB under the code name “AEOLOS” reached a maximum altitude of 30.886m and landed safely on a remote area at Mount Taygetos, from

Astronauts start ham video broadcasts from space station PDF Print Email

Ham TV equipmentAstronauts on the International Space Station can now talk with people on Earth with video using simple transmitters. ‘Ham TV’ has been set up in ESA’s Columbus laboratory and already used for talking with ground control.

Amateur radio enthusiasts have been able to poll astronauts circling our planet using standard radio equipment since the Station was inaugurated in 2000. Radio signals easily reach the orbital outpost flying 350 km above us on sets readily available to radio enthusiasts.

The new Ham TV adds a visual dimension, allowing an audience on the ground to see and hear the astronauts.

The hardware, developed by Kayser Italia, with off-the-shelf components assembled by the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station organization was sent to the Station on Japan’s space freighter in August last year and connected to an existing S-band antenna on Columbus.
