Slow Scan Television

Probably my second favorite mode (right behind HF Fone) is slow-scan television (SSTV) using the computor's sound card.Although my primary interest is HF, some of us have been working 2 meter SSTV. The biggest differance , other than being shorter range, is the need for an interface to key the rig. Otherwise we have gotten some good pictures. I plan on posting some of them and some more info soon.

Here is a pic sent to me on 2 meters by N8ER.

This is a picture of the workbench in his shack.

It's "noisy" because we were on simplex and I did not have a very good antenna.

Here is a pic I recieved on 20 meters (14.230 mhz). This pic is a little noisy also but for different reasons.

Here's some pictures I've copied off the air.
