It’s great to see the image coming down from ISS after all of these years of hard work.
Lets not miss this opportunity to generate some good publicity out of these types of amateur radio projects. The more good news stories the better for everyone.
When MAREX put SSTV on Mir in 1998-1999, it generate great press for the Russian space program. The liked seeing positive new stories about Mir for a change. In fact they like it so much they asked for a New and improved version, which is where SpaceCam1 came from.
So take your best shots and try to contact your local news media and see if you can generate some good press for the amateur radio community.
Also send your best shots to the MAREX SpaceCam web page at:
Sstv at issspacecam.org
73 and keep watching, SSTV that is.
