Trying out something new, Pirate SSTV web page
« on: October 26, 2010, 0259 UTC »
Howdy all,

Trying something new.  I have put up a web page that is running live SSTV images.  A radio is tuned to 6925 USB 24 hours a day (unless I am using it for something else).  It is attached to a PC running MMSSTV.  The received images are uploaded to the web page.

If it works out I will leave it up, for now it is just a test.  I have the detect levels set pretty low, so there might be quite a few falses.  The page will only keep the 12 most recent images.

Hey TOKEN!  :)
Checked out the web page and this is a great addition!
Very neat idea as this adds a new dimension to pirate monitoring!
What time of day do you get most of the images and have you ever
received any from the East Coast assuming you know the source that is....  ;D
It is really is easy to monitor the SSTV signals as it costs basically nothing
with the free software kindly provided by seberal sources and is very easy
to set up if you have never done so before. All you super SWL's and the rest
all lets see it!  LOL

Very Cool addition to our Pirate listening.... seeing is believing!!
... Just a token response of course!
