What is the difference between these pictures and those sent by SSTV?

Only serious business instead of amateur stuff... Again amateur radio apparatus is left on the extreme right lane and probably soon in the 
ditch if the ISS amateur radio apparatus is not put back in service soon! I asked this question about an hundred times: why they don't put 
the ISS cross band repeater on? It can run unattended and there is no risk the batteries get down as those in the camera. It will also send 
the QRP'er away off the other sat as the ISS repeater is very very easy to hear and work too.

Great promoting asset collecting floating dust in space.
