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.
