Satellite SSTV

In recent years, a few amateurs have had success sending and receiving SSTV through amateur satellites.  The new Phase 3D bird should provide plenty of opportunities for SSTV.  In the meantime, though, there are still plenty of ways to work Satellite SSTV!


Ron Chapman, KA2HZO got this excellent image from RS12, using ChromaPIX for the uplink, and the MAREX SpaceCam for the downlink.  Good work, Ron!

Also, we'll mention that he did this on one computer, running both programs concurrently.  How?  Well, his Turtle Beach Santa Cruz card will allow you to run multiple SSTV programs.  As far as we know, it's the only one that will do it.
