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