Since August 2013 HAMTV equipment is on-board ISS. This equipment allow now to receive directly Ham video and audio from ISS. Last Commissioning has been made 13 April 2014 with success. This forum needs now a HAMTV TV section inside Amateur Radio menu.
You can see how I received the video with Koichi Wakata speaking to us. I was receiving real time video during 5mn 45sec. A wonderful experience! You can watch the video here:
HamTV is an ARISS project, so will be used now for school contact with ISS

Going through my QSL cards I notice quite a few amateurs have ISSFan Club Member # on their cards. I didn't think
that there were any member #s. IS THERE?

How to get ISS Fan Club location to work?


ISS Fan Club says my location is Little Rock, which it isn't, but then says "click here" to change it. A box comes up telling me to type my location in, and hit search. So far, so good. It finds my location, and for some reason wants me to click on it (an unnecessary step), and when I do the mouse pointer turns into a fist and I can do no more.

This is obviously a broken interface. Can anyone tell me how I can set my location by simply entering a latitude and longitude? Either that, or when the graphical version is expected to work again?
