SSTV from the International Space Station

These images were downloaded at my home QTH using my FT857 on 2m with the 2-band Moonraker yagi. The images are SSTV and were transmitted from the Russian amateur radio station on board the International Space Station (ISS) using the callsign RS0ISS. The images are part of a set commemorating Yuri Gagarin. More information can be found on the ISS Fan Club website.
