During the 21:13 pass over N. America, the ISS was running packet on
145.825 simplex. The SSTV systems are not available to be run unattended
at this time and the crew had begun their sleep period. You can get an
idea of when SSTV and voice might be available by looking at the posted
crew schedules at
Garriott is listed as SFPVC, Fincke is CDR-18.

Just had a pass of about 42 degrees at 21:13 UTC over the eastern part
of the U.S. Grid EM83 and heard nothing. No SSTV, no voice. Looks like
I'm going to have to leave the rig  and PC  running unattended 24 hours
a day to have a chance at snagging anything. I should be able to copy
this with a vertical right? I'm having some problems with my AZ/EL
rotators and don't want to leave them unattended.
