That last pix was from the top of my desk back in the summer of 2017!!
The hams at BRNO University delivered the PSK31/SSTV module for PSAT2
on-time and on-budget (free to us). They worked over the holidays to meet
a very short deadline and delivered in February 2017 for a March
Then 2+ years of launcher and FCC delays and it finally got launched now!
I guess whenever I powered it up, it must have been taking pictures.
Im sure it was frustrating for them to see all the launch delays, but each
was only a few months and so there was no time (and risk was too high) to
send it back to the Czech Republic for them to do any more tweaks...
(Like I got to do on PSAT2 firmware for 2 years!)
