Tips on working ISS via Voice

Slow Scan TV Status (SpaceCam1)

The SpaceCam1 SSTV system was last seen on August 26,
2006.  At the present time, the SSTV and Packet
systems are temporally shutdown.  There is no date on
when the crew will reactivate the equipment.

I have set up a new page to show many of the images we
have received.  To date, I have 7 unique images from
ISS and many repeats.  If you have new images; please
forward that image to Marex at:
