Very poor copy on my end, but I can make out the 'RS0ISS' on it and it looks like it's probably yours Chris.

Nice.  I was able to receive the signal in Chantilly, but the picture is just pure random noise.  It looks like I need an 80+ degree pass to pick something up.

I had a very strong signal on the radio in my car but wasn't able to successfully decode with the app on my phone.

Chris, very good images. There's a lot to be said for being able to automatically
follow the Doppler shift - personally, I use the manual "click the mouse" method! :)
