Being a bit further west than you I got picture 8/12 from this pass.

My first time trying to capture SSTV with a Baofang HT held next to computer mic so not the best quality capture but just about identifiable.

Hope for better luck with a bit of practice during today's passes over the UK. Will post capture(s) if I manage to get anything of reasonable quality.

In the end I managed to get 4 images from various passes over the 2 days.
Probably not the best quality but I using a Baofeng held in one hand and a mobile phone to record the audio in the other while standing by a window. Then imported files to MMSSTV to decode.

I got images 1, 8, 10 and 12 of the set and they can be found at:

Be listening for ISS sending out SSTV of Christmas Greetings! They did that at least three times overnight.
I must be getting older. Now, when I watch a 007 James Bond flick, Ms. Moneypenny is even looking more attractive.

Looks like these broadcasts are due to continue until New Years Eve. Unfortunately most of the passes over my QTH are early in the morning. There is one (low elevation pass) at c0940 Local tomorrow (26-Dec) and Sunday but the 'overhead' passes are at 0500/0600 and getting earlier. Not sure I can be face getting up that early (with 0c temp's forecast) to grab a couple of images.
