By the way, once I got MMSTV loaded I decided to just park it on 14.230 MHz all day long and watch the SSTV images come rolling in.  I have been watching them in my office (when I walk by that PC) and although hear SSTV all day long, and some signals very strong.....  I must admit, only ONE in 2 weeks has been discernable as to what the picture actually is..

ALl the rest you can tell MAYBE that it is some kind of picutre with maybe some text at the top and the bottom, but NONE of them have been readable.  Yet, the signals sound like they would make a Q5 599 SSB signal.  Is it just me, or does HF multipath slur the imgaes beyone all recognition.?
