WM2U's w95sstv page
Click here for the sound of SSTV :)
Please print this article and use it as a hand out at Club talks and lectures

It supports most of the common modes, Scottie 1&2, Martin 1&2, Robot 36&72, AVT 24,90&94 and Wrasse. It stores 60 thumbnail images for TX and handles 4 on RX. You can prepare a picture while you are receiving or transmitting another. It has the ease of full windows conveniences like drag-and-drop, mouse control, Save and Load windows, and many more functions. The system can Auto-Receive pictures, modes, and will even sequentially number the images in Auto-Save Mode.
95SSTV is, in a nutshell, a Slow Scan TV Program written for computers running WIN95 or NT. It uses the computers sound card has an Analog-to-Digital converter for receiving or a Digital-to-Analog converter for transmitting. It is a true 32-bit program and will share processor time and resources with other 32-bit programs such that you could surf the web, run a word processor or whatever at the same time as running SSTV.
Ok download the software at http://www.barberdsp.com/w95sstv/w95sstv.htm, install it, then please! print off the help files. They are very well written and have a lot more information for you than I will be including in this write-up.

But first check out your computer. The system requirements are:
From the screen shot above. 'File' on the menu bar leads only to the exit!  The 'Edit' menu allows you to configure the system, and 'Help' contains the release note which I urge you to print off and study.
Now click on Edit then Settings, and select your active Com Port. Although there are more settings that I want you to know about, simply activate your Com Port for the time being. This is enough to get ya! going. 
o load an image into the main Tx/Rx window, drag an image from the Tx Thumbnails onto the main window. Hey! would you believe you can have 60 Tx thumbnails available! Now the trick is to get a nice personalized image into the Tx thumbnail cell.
Screen shot of folder list window.

Lets get a picture to play with eh! Click on the button named Open Image. The folder window on the left opens.
Now select the folder in which your photos are stored, and you will notice a file listing appear in the right hand window. As you click on the files you will notice that you get a preview in the small window at the bottom.
Drag the selected image from the Preview Window to the Paint Icon found at lower right of Main Window and the Paint Window will open with the image ready to work on. Edit the image as shown below then click done. Now drag image off the Paint Board and onto a Tx Thumbnail cell

The Paint Window offers you more than adequate image editing capability.
It operates the same as the  regular paint program so I will not go into any detail here on how to use it.  You will get access to all the systems fonts, colors, sizes, and types as well as the image Export, Import and Load commands.
The example at right shows a simple call sign addition to one of my holiday photos :)

Well! enough of that. Lets do it eh!

Right! first things first eh! Before you do anything else, you need to interface your radio to the computer. Please go to my Interfacing page where you will find detailed instructions on how to achieve this. 
Now configure the software to tell it where to find stuff. Edit>Settings and select your active Com Port.
I will assume you have made some really nice interesting images for transmission and you have them all ready in the Tx thumbnail cells.
Tune your rig to 14.230mHz, and watch and listen for a few minutes. Practice receiving images, clearing the screen, starting the image Rx, and using the Auto Rx feature which will start the image Rx by recognizing the start, sync pulses. Oh! at this point is your Rx picture slanted? If so go to Edit>Settings and click on Adjust Slant. Slowly drag the slider either right or left until the picture is straight. Click Finish and don't forget to Save. Use the locked together option for Rx and Tx, this gives the best results in most cases.
Drag an image from a Tx thumbnail cell into the main Rx/Tx window and with a dummy load connected, click Transmit Image. Set your rig volume to an easy level and adjust the sound card Volume, Mic amd Wave levels for the desired output. Remove the dummy load.
Your now with an SSTV group on frequency, and it's your call!..... well go on .... hit the Transmit Image Button :)

It works. It works well. The freq's are 3.845, 7.171, 14.230, 21.340 and 28.680. It is no use me continuing with this epistle as Jim, N7CXI has done an excellent job with the help files. Please read Release.txt, where you will find a lot more settings and operating tips that you should know. I have only scratched the surface here, enough to get you on line and operating.
