Black Cat SSTV beats the competition
« on: February 12, 2021, 1305 UTC »
"The difference between the quality of MMSSTV decodes and Black Cat decodes of the same signal  through the same sound card was pretty dramatic as can be seen in some test images below.  So, I concluded that Black Cat was the better piece of software for signal reception due to its improved decode capabilities."
