What's 'medium resolution' ? Standard SSTV is not digital, it's analogous
with the (now no longer used) analogue TV. There is true digital SSTV used
on 80m and 40m and (I guess) other bands, from memory this is EasyPal; to
implement this in a satellite would be a long and tedious task.

Implementing one of the analogue SSTV modes would be easier - much easier -
but quality is nowhere as good.

We are looking for a practical system to use on a 1U, or perhaps 2U, cubesat
to take medium definition images and transmit them to the ground on VHF for
educational outreach purposes.
