Excuse me for jumping in, but just wanted to mention that I use RX-SSTV (
http://users.belgacom.net/hamradio/rxsstv.htm) and, like many of the SSTV
apps, it saves each image file as it's received.

Now, that by itself doesn't give you an audio recording, so if you want to
record the audio "just in case", that's a separate thing.

But as far as leaving a radio & computer unattended to "see what you get",
the SSTV software will do that for you if you wish.
