SSTV usage

Hey Gang

I'm rewriting Amsat-UK's beginners' book. I want to say something about
sstv but I don't know anything about it :(

In the previous edition of the book I said this: 

Most satellite sstv operators currently use the Scottie-1 mode, 
but many operators use MMSSTV software so CQs in Robot36 mode 
will also be received automatically. Doppler shift on the 
downlink frequency can be a disturbing factor so it is 
suggested that operators send the 1200Hz tone for about 5 sec 
or more at the start of transmissions. Do not move the uplink 
frequency between transmissions.

I'd be very grateful if users of the mode could bring me up to date.
