UNID SSTV on 6952 usb, 1930 utc 24 Dec. 2016
« on: December 24, 2016, 1933 UTC »
Saw a suspicious signal on the SDR waterfall and jumped on it in time to catch the last half of a greyscale test pattern with no ID.

Fired up again @1934, big S9+20 signal, biggest signal in the band by far, but still just a grey bar test pattern with no ID.  (There was a presumed CW ID at the end, but I don't speak CW and I didn't record it.)
