Very poor in the noise on 6925 in western NY
0424 UTC   Bluesy solo guitar

0447 UTV   SSTV, but nothing appeared on my MMSSTV screen, must be doing something wrong, though it worked on the previous attempt.

Thanks for the transmission, my first attempt at SSTV decoding! Thanks for posting your SSTV scan, Skipmuck, certainly what I had, with the orange letters across the image.
