Capturing these wonderful images can be as simple as using an HT 
programmed to 145.800, a simple homebrew antenna improvement 
(like a tape measure beam), and a great $3 iOS app from Black Cat 
Systems entitled “SSTV Slow Scan TV”. 


With this meager setup, receiving SSTV images from the ISS was 
really simple! I merely held my iPod touch near my HT’s speaker, and 
obtained clean graphics immediately. This app also works on iPhones 
and iPads.

SO ... ANOTHER aspect of this wonderful hobby that one can get in to 
without spending a lot of money!

Here's an article from AMSAT-UK with more software/hardware 
suggestions ... http://amsat-uk.org/2015/03/31/iss-sstv/
