Steve that was my image. I made it at the last minute and didn't have
time to increase the size of my callsign, which is barely decipherable
even in the original image:


Please send me your reception if you don't mind. Lots of people
received the images this evening and they are sharing them on Twitter,
Facbook, and even on Instagram. Pretty cool to get SSTV reports from a
satellite. This is a first for me and I agree this is a very cool

P.S. Space Comms is my YouTube channel ham radio space communications:
