Hi Trevor, M5AKA
I was receiving Tony England W0ORE from the Space Shuttle STS-51-F
Challenger Spacelab 2 in beginning august 1985.
In that days I was in vacation at my home in Paestum and able to receive
the very strong SSTV signal in 2 meters standing on the beach with only
a handheld FT-290 and his hown 1/4 wave antenna.
Some time Tony was speaking for a whole orbit with a station in England,
GB2RS if I well remember, and I should have somewhere an audio tape
Wery nice to remember that days !
