Very very loud SSTV received in IO75 (Glasgow) with a J-Pole in a tree-shrouded back garden!


Equipment was a homebrew J-pole on a 12-foot "mast", Trio TR-7730
transceiver, and qsstv on my laptop.  I recorded the pass so I could
fiddle about with decoding parameters later.

I started to catch another transmission just as the satellite dropped
out of range at about 8 degrees elevation - if I had hooked up the quad
I might have caught it.

My first successful SSTV decode, too!

I can make the captured .wav file available if anyone wants it.
