It's counterintuitive,  but through the magic of sampling theory, once 
you sample at twice the maximum frequency of the signal you are 
interested in you know _everything_ about it!  As a practical matter, 
most ham gear audio rolls off sharply above 3 kHz (and SSTV is lower 
than that) , so sampling at a measly 8 or 11.025kHz rate is plenty.

And it's not public domain, but it is available as free software:   
check out QSSTV for source code.

If you are interested in sampling theory, check out
