We have lost our momentum:

Now that the ISS crew and use Email and Twitter to send two way images to family and friends, we have less use for the idle Amateur Radio projects on board ISS.

We have had Slow Scan TV on ISS since 2005!

However due to poor management by ARISS and two (2) defective VOX boxes, the Slow Scan TV projects are Stalled and are rarely used.
By now we should have received over 150,000* down linked SSTV images from ISS.  Instead we have less than 3,000 images from the past 5 years.

We are long overdue to reorganize the ARISS Hardware and Management structure.


Let's Rebuild ARISS and then Rebuild the Educational Amateur Radio projects on ISS.

*SSTV image math (5 years X 100 images-per-day X 300 days)
