Well done …. As you say not the best picture but it has all the right information to confirm it. I am sure others, myself included would be interested in what your set-up was to capture the picture i.e. radio, antenna, receiving program, was the ISS directly over you or was it east or west of you.
Well done once again

Is the ISS sending this on 145.800 all the time ?24 February 2015 at 6:29 pm #781939
They have stopped transmitting the sstv now ,they’ve done it a couple of times but it seems to be very popular so they might be going to do it on a regular basis hopefully. Information can be had from the amsat website or ariss but i will post up future news if it comes about again and give yous a heads up would be nice to see if there are others in the club that have a similar interest and maybe inspire others to try it out25 February 2015 at 9:06 am #784679
I have been listening off and on the last couple of days but as yet haven’t heard anything, Gicves the heads up if you know it is going to happen again as I might have ago at trying to get it as well.25 February 2015 at 9:41 pm #786798
Well done Sean – I’ve always wanted to have a go . Hope I can have a chat with you and get some tips next time I see you.

Excellent stuff Sean, enjoyed the video!
Funnily enough I just downloaded MMSTV today so I could have a look and see if it’s something I fancy doing! also28 February 2015 at 10:22 am #797623
nice pics and vid Sean
what i fail to understand is why they send photos of postage stamps , the cosmos is at there fingertips shurley its easy enough to take a pic of their surrondings to send ..
my opinion only, there will be a reason ..
