    I managed to snag an SSTV image from the International Space Station today. They're sending back to back SSTV images until the 26th of June 2021 http://ariss-sstv.blogspot.com/

    I was using an Icom IC-9700 talking to MMTV SSTV software running on my computer, The antenna is a basic tri-band vertical. (Comet GP-95).

    Same activity over here, using my HT from the shack and 1/4 lambda GP in the attic.

    2 of the 4 images captured yesterday and today, these are good quality ones:

    I took an old radio for a picnic and decided to listen to what's in the air. There were practically no stations on short waves, but unexpectedly good reception on long waves during the day! The noise from the phone during shooting is very disturbing. But the excellent quality of the Polish radio, where there was a lot of advertising, and the Romanian radio with good music we likes.



    And I receive this )

    What I told ;)... I am happy that the old boat anchor is doing well. Good radio and good job!
    By the way, I was not aware that LW NDBs are still in operation. Well, it is reasonable as a backup in case of GPS is off (hopefully never will be).

    The guy lines of the radials of my vertical have finally broken and now it has become a vertical dipole)

    But this morning I woke up at 03 UTC and managed, before the neighbors began to turn on their interference, to make short QSO with VU3NXI and K7JH on 20-ty.
