 Amazingly live video was detected over Australia today, presumably it
was still on over USA!.

Here is a link to the video I received today (in Europe)
No audio was turned on.

It is expected there will be two more video downlinks next week:

Istituto Sobrero, Casale Monferrato, Italy, direct via IK1SLD
The ISS callsign is presently scheduled to be OR4ISS
The scheduled astronaut is Tim Kopra KE5UDN
Contact is a go for: Thu 2016-02-25 09:10:55 UTC 40 deg (***)

Norwich Schools, Norwich/East Anglia, UK, direct via GB2CNS
The ISS callsign is presently scheduled to be GB1SS
The scheduled astronaut is Timothy Peake KG5BVI
Contact is a go for: Fri 2016-02-26 14:43:39 UTC 29 deg (***)

>From now on we should expect a video downlink all over the world,
before and after any European school contact, and possibly any time.

I have posted more information on the dedicated HAMTV mailing list:

It is likely USA Hams should be able to receive video during the setup
pre-european contact. There is info on the equipment recommended here:
Please ask if you have any questions. I managed to receive a signal
before with just a dish handheld without any rotator. Ideally we would
like a group of 4+ USA ground stations spaced apart to give 10+
minutes of constant video, or if you can get a commercial 2m or 3m
tracking dish that would need less ground stations.
