SSTV on the ISS



I recently learned from Miles that things are underway to place SSTV on the
ISS.

Last year, I spent many enjoyable moments setting up images from the MIR to
automatically appear in a local school.  The school has big interest in
space and a permanent amateur satellite station.

The pictures were fascinating.  With the signals (including audio) directed
to some large overhead monitors, all could see new images and occasionally
here audio from the MIR.  It added a special element, now that kids and
visitors could actually see the picture come down in real time.

Let's hope all goes well with the project.  It will undoubtedly be a big
hit.  I can forsee lots of potential for schools to integrate both amateur
radio and space studies
with the simple addition of a two meter radio interfaced to a sound card.
