I have copied and worked LOTS of  SSTV  stations on 20 
meters.  And some were not all that strong.  There is a lot of QRM, 
doubling, people talking on SSB, etc etc  on 14.230. 
We also did some SSTV on  AO-51  a while back and I got some
good pictures there, too. 
Here are a couple of 20M ones attached.
