I was testing my equipment at 16:57 UTC for the scheduled ISS SSTV test (on the following orbit), when I heard CW tones, and then the typical SSTV tones. WOW. I jump from the chair. I couldn't belive it! I received a perfect robot 36 still image, and when I thought the surprises were over, I recieved a near perfect live image using Martin 1 WOWOWOWOW.

I just spoke with Sergei at 16:46 UTC and asked him if he would try the SSTV today. While he was going to turn it on, he was just about LOS on the east coast. Just before he went LOS, he told me that he would try it on the next US orbit.
The next pass is only a 10 degree inclination, so it will mostly favor the northern part of the US and Canada.
Good luck all, and get you SSTV programs cued up!
