They might but the KiwiSDR SSTV decoder can only work on 3630, 3730, 3845, 7171, 14230, 14233, 21340, and 28680 kHz. Those are all ham frequencies and are of no use for decoding pirate SSTV images.

The KiwiSDR SSTV decoder works on any frequency the KiwiSDR is tuned to.  I use it to decode pirate radio SSTV all the time. 

Tune in the pirate normally.  Then start the SSTV decoder from the <extension> drop down menu.  Do NOT select anything from the SSTV decoder subwindow dropdown menu <freq>.  The SSTV decoder will be operating, listening on the frequency the KiwiSDR is tuned to.

Thank you! I tried that and it works perfectly!
Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using a Sony ICF-2010 with an 11 meter inverted V antenna.

I have discovered that MMSSTV decodes properly if I am playing a recording (including from YouTube) but not when listening on a KiwiSDR  ??? I have been using the KiwiSDR SSTV decoder but it isnít very good (often doesnít detect images at all, must be on when the image starts).
