Nice pass just now, started 07:53z (about local midnight). Off for a few minutes, then I heard the voice transmission, then off, then SSTV. Full quieting with my 8 element beam and a preamp. The SSTV picture was not so great, as it was near the end of the pass, and I had disabled my Az tracking before the antenna would have needed to swing past 0-degrees. I usually get better results being not quite aimed right, than losing 60 seconds of tracking while it swings clear around.
How long will it be in this mode? I didn't get much chance to tune around the passband to see if anything else was going on.
