I've been getting SSTV for about the past hour here. Not nearly as much activity as the past few days, but often the middle of the weak is slow. Some strong signals with solid copy, so the band is certainly open. As usual images posted to the #sstv channel on the HFU Discord: https://discord.gg/hfunderground

Here's one:
