Excellent here on the SDR recording. I had to cut and paste the first image,which had a transmission glitch. And an image that spanned two SDR recording files.

a bit out of time, sorry, but anyway: I heard Radio Stasi also
in NW Germany that particular night. SINPO was 23322

I had 4 of the SSTVs quite solid, at 02.11, 02.13, 02.15 and 02.34 UTC
...and some more songs like these:
02.21 UTC Lord Huron - Ancient Names (Pt. 1)
02.26 UTC PhD - I Want Let You Down
02.36 UTC Roxy Music - Oh Yeah
02.41 UTC Kate Bush - Wuthering Heights
and 02.46 UTC ex GDR national anthem

I would love to receive any eQSL for my report, thanks in advance!
