Today SEEDS had both CW, and digitalker on.

Actually the digitalker had the 'secret' code
spoken, which, according to their WEB site, will
enable you to receive the special digitalker QSL.
So I did submit, let's see if I get it.

Same holds for SSTV, so I submitted the received
picture, which was transmitted in the same pass,
inbetween the spoken messages.

Reception was done during lunch, at around 5 degrees
elevation, still good quality.

Just now (in the evening) writing this email, after
I monitored the 437.485 CW downlink. Also was fine.

Would be nice if they would also be able to upload
in the SSTV picture 'secret' messages. Not sure if it
can be programmed still, or is fixed in the satellite.
