      the ISS runs SSTV broadcasts several times a year

      it is simple to recieve with a handheld and mobile phone app to decode the signals

      or you can use a base station radio connected to a PC with some software like Yoniq, MMSSTV or any other software capable of decoding PD120 mode signals

      it always uses 145.800 FM as the base frequency, doppler shift will be about +3khz as the ISS approaches your location and about -3khz once it has passed over and moving away from your location

      using heavens above website you can get a list of times the ISS will be in range / above the horizon for you

      see http://ariss-sstv.blogspot.com/ for information on when the transmissions are scheduled

      see https://heavens-above.com/PassSummary.aspx?satid=25544&lat=51.4&lng=0.74&loc=qbr&alt=3&tz=GMT for pass time, (make sure you select ALL passes) or you will only get dawn / dusk passes when you can see the ISS in the sky

      There’s ISS SSTV activity until 5pm on the 31st of December 2021, with several people reporting some decent images. It’s prompted me to write a short article on how to receive images from the ISS: Receiving images from ISS

      Thanks for the suggestion!

      Pete
