I just copied this SSTV image from the ISS, using a netSDR, discone antenna, and decoded with my Black Cat SSTV app.

I managed to get a SSTV image as the ISS flew overhead my location, by using a Uniden bc72xlt scanner with a diamond rh77ca antenna, I corrected the acid colour problem I had earlier by sliding the phrase button

Got a good image as it made a overpass above my location about a few minutes ago, excellent signal!

I've gotten some very good decodes, and at least one that was doomed because the pass was high and I'm using a vertically polarized antenna. I hope to have something decent for all 12 images but I hurt my chances by forgetting to set things up to record the first three or four passes made when the campaign started. We'll see what happens. Anyway I'm going to wait until it's all over and then share the best images that I captured.
