Copied from the same pass, I'm further north, so I didn't get your first image, and got a different second image (which had a transmission glitch, I had to do some manual editing):

And the next pass at 2018z:



This image had the same exact glitch last time they sent it. (I fixed it manually). Seems like they are just transmitting an audio loop, vs using actual SSTV software?

From the pass at 0211Z this evening. I wasn't expecting it but had left one of the radios on freq and there he was! Bonus.

I got a worse quality version of the same image at 2:14 A.M. UTC.




They must be BLASTING the signal, as I received it in a city apartment with a stock telescoping antenna.

Dragund, they are using a Kenwood TM-D710 which runs 50/10/5 watts. Lots of power and at setting. Info from here: http://ariss-sstv.blogspot.co.uk/

Here is the image from the 0347Z pass last night.
