There are three methods the crew can use to send down SSTV from ISS.
1. The crew can use the SpaceCam software on the PC that is onboard.
This software uses a VOX interface that keys up the D700 when it hears
the SSTV audio.
2. The crew can use the MMSSTV software that is on the PC that is
onboard. This software will also use the VOX interface in the same way
that the Spacecam software does.
3. The crew can use the VC-H1 that Richard Garriott is bringing up
with him when he goes up on October 12. You can look up the VC-H1
specifications on the Kenwood web site.
We are looking forward to Richard's flight and expect him to use the
SSTV equipment quite a bit while onboard ISS.
