I saw a report that Mike Fincke called CQ over Eastern Australia around 10:58 UTC on Oct 15 2008. If you are hoping for SSTV, you will have to wait until the crew activates it in the morning. The system is only running when the crew is awake. To know when that is, check the crew timelines posted at http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/timelines/10_2008_tl.html
Garriott is listed as SFPVC, Fincke is CDR-18.

Subject: [sarex] No SSTV in VK/ZL?

Has anybody heard a peep in VK or ZL? Despite intensive efforts I've 
seen or heard nothing at all. Not even a peep on last night's overhead 
pass, not even the hint of a peep. I even left the rig and Computer on 
24/7 last few days.

I thought I would hear *SOMETHING*, if not decode it!
