I have read AMSAT officials say it will be on a schedule between the
2m/70cm transponder and also the L band uplink.
The camera also turns off after 40 minutes from what I understand, so it
couldn't be on 24/7 very easily.

These are pretty cool and I hope to attempt to copy some at some point.
Will the picture experiment be running / accessible on a continuous basis
or a schedule?
