ISS SSTV Images received 04 11 2018

Received at 2355 04-11-2018 low elevation pass (for me) over NE US. They are scheduled to be transmitting tomorrow also - later today Z time.
Don't know if they will be transmitting on next pass over SE US.

I copied the same image as the first one Terry posted at 1426 UTC here in Denver. No need to reshare the image, but you can see a video of that capture here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHDn5ZGr0No

Per ARRL this is going to continue until 1820 UTC on the 14th.

If you don't have satellite tracking software or otherwise know when the ISS might pass over your QTH, check out the following website, input your coordinates (and altitude also, I think - I've been registered here so long I can't remember if that's also an option), then click on "ISS" for ISS passes, then click on the "all passes" radio button to get the daytime passes as well as visible nighttime ones.

EDIT: copied this at about 2056 UTC. Not sure why there was a fade right in the middle of the tx; ISS had good elevation above the horizon and was even visible from my back yard at the time:

Received this one on the last pass just a few minutes ago. I the others I posted above were received using MMSSTV, Yaesu FT-857D and dual band j-pole. This one received with the Black Cat Systems SSTV PAD iPhone app from Chris with a RS scanner and a mag mount mobile antenna. Received some earlier today with the app also.

I picked this up 5:13 P.M. UTC 04/13.  I have a 3 foot stock indoor antenna in a city apartment, so I consider this great reception:
