If the battery comes out of the ISS fully charged, you will hear it OK-  The
solar cells will keep it in a charged up scenario.
Now, I hope the day they finally decide to kick this out is a day I will be
near my station....

Thanks for the reply Peter,

I am " not" a school teacher . lol....  I have a mere setup for a satellite
station , FM only . I would not attempt to set up a portable station for a
classroom event and expect to recieve any of the downlinks We look forward
to from ARISSAT . I have only downloaded 2 or 3 sstv pictures from Seeds 2 .
That is with My controlled antenna and FM station . Is it so easy to receive
sstv from Seeds ? I hear it and hear a good signal , but don't copy the pic
very successfully . I think it will be the same power output that is from
Seeds .? 500mw?  I will be listening , but still have My doubts.
