RS0ISS transmitted PD120 SSTV postcards December 28 2019 – January 1 2020 in memory of cosmonaut Alexei Leonov. I received the signals at 145.800 MHz using my new IC9700 rig and a M2 2MCP8A antenna. I did not use Doppler compensation, which accounts for some of the wobbliness. I used Nova for Windows to track the ISS.
Air Force Major General Alexei Leonov (1934 – 2019) was a Soviet and Russian cosmonaut, who in March 1965 became the first human to conduct a spacewalk. In July 1975, Leonov commanded the Soyuz capsule in the Soyuz–Apollo mission.
