UHF-Satcom.com - Satellite Audio Samples - formatted in mp3 and wav - last updated (01/05/2012 12:13:31 +0100)

BTW if you have any nice audio samples that you would like included here, please email them to sounds@uhf-satcom.com. Matthius DD1US also maintains an excellent archive of 'sounds from space'. Mysteryship.nl also has an excellent satcom audio archive.

There is a list of equipment used to receive each of the following, to view it, click here. In the following list, for Shuttle digital audio, S/G indicates space-to-ground communications from the ISS. A/G denotes air-to-ground communications from the Shuttle. When the Shuttle is undocked, both channels operate as air-to-ground. The digital multiplex from the Shuttle contains two audio channels and a host of other telemetry, including payload data and sequential still video, although the data format for the video is unknown (info is needed on this!).

Note: We are looking for details of the full S-Band telemetry frame, particularly relating to the Sequential Still Video that is transmitted via this link. We need to know where in the frame it is, the compression type, etc - if you have any info on this, please get in touch, it would be awesome to get images out of the archive of data!
