Thanks for your note re transmission via the ARISSat-1 Transponder.  I have 
also been experimenting with voice and SSTV and did manage,  probably  by 
luck and by chance,  to transmit and receive back a fairly good  R 36 
picture.  (ariss-sstv.blogspot.com)  Hopefully others will try  voice or 
SSTV through  this historical satellite while it still orbits.  Please  keep 
posting the results of your experiments and contacts.
