I got a reply from WI2XJP: "Thanks Chris, nice image. My software is supposed to grab a frame from a Webcam every 5 minutes but I see that it's just transmitting grey scales."

stuff like this intrigues me a great deal.
researching the web, i found a comment from the station owner from about a month ago concerning 5.058Mhz:
"The purpose is to find an optimum combination of antennas,power, and frequency for reliable NVIS coverage over 100-300 mile path. Ultimately the goal is to send digital voice/images over HF over a NVIS path."

With the ongoing decline of solar activity as the cycle inexorably finds it's way to the bottom, I find it interesting that the licensee expects some kind of positive result from these experiments. I'm not knocking his efforts, but the rewards will almost certainly defy any immediate gratification. "Reliable" NVIS will continue to be a rapidly shrinking concept for a few more years as we head towards the upcoming "Maunder Minimum". If the predictions of the experts turns out to be correct, then it's time to grab an extra blanket to weather the mini ice age.....  ;D
