Transmissions should be available worldwide on 145.800 MHz FM, using SSTV mode PD120.

Transmissions are set to start on December 26 at about 1825 UTC and end December 31 at about 1705 UTC. The signal should be receivable on a handheld transceiver with a quarter-wave whip antenna. Use the widest filter for 25 kHz channel spacing.
