Re: xmit sstv to the ISS

 Why would anyone want to u/l a pic when the ISS is actively sending 
pictures down? Does anyone really want to see anything else? Do you think 
the crew wants' to look at our pictures? I would think not. Why not just 
experiment with SSTV on FO29, or AO7,  but out of the voice pass band 
area's, please.
