A vox recorder will work, however a running SSTV problem will work much better.  Just make sure you save the images to disk. Most if not all SSTV programs have an Auto Receive move and will save to disk.

Practice at home sending and receiving images between two radios on your radio bench.

If you have HF you can try to RX on 14.230 SSB, that freq is usually busy with HF sstv.

When you are all set, go to FM 145.800, Robot-36 and leave the rig on 24/7.
