Actually, I remember seeing CoCo doing SSTV stuff too. The owner of
the company my mom worked for had a huge ham setup, he'd show it off
when he hosted parties.
This setup actually used the CoCo connected to the Robot interface. I
was really amazed by the technology. I thought he said he had written
it himself in assembly. It held one picture per floppy, with a LOT
more colors and better resolution than the CoCo could do by itself.
Probably no chance of him still having that stuff though, I know he
got out of the ham and CoCo hobby many years ago.
