Just to clarify, we are trying V/U SSTV on the 435.150 downlink this week. 
The schedule as posted:

November 10 - November 12

FM Repeater, L/S
Uplink: 1268.700 MHz FM
Downlink: 2401.200 MHz FM

SSTV FM Repeater (Robot 36 only, maximum 1 image transmitted per pass)
Uplink: 145.860 MHz FM
Downlink: 435.150 MHz FM

November 13 - November 16

FM Repeater, V/S
Uplink: 145.880 MHz FM
Downlink: 2401.200 MHz FM

SSTV FM Repeater (Robot 36 only, maximum 1 image transmitted per pass)
Uplink: 145.860 MHz FM
Downlink: 435.150 MHz FM

The intention was to standardize the mode so there is no confusion, and to 
include those using the Kenwood VC-H1s. I think we should stick to this for 
this session. If there isn't a lot of traffic, I think more than one image 
is OK, but we want to give everyone an opportunity to participate. So...use 
some common sense if you feel motivated to send more than one image. How 
well everyone cooperates using this will determine if and how often the mode 
is repeated!
