Allen N5AFV had just finished a talk on ARISSAT-1 for the Brazos Valley 
Amateur Radio Club here in SW Houston... Bruce KK5DO, Charlie K5ENG, and a 
few others headed outside to listen for the ARISSAT-1 tests from the ISS. We 
heard it on a 7-deg el pass using his TH-D72 HT. On the next pass, I was 
listening from home, but just wasn't quick enough to catch the SSTV signal 
in it's entirity. However, you can see what I did manage to capture with my 
TH-D7A and VC-H1 at 0450Z at http://www.w5acm.net/110211_004014.jpg

Looking forward to R-28 on Feb 16th!
