SLOW SCAN TELEVISION TRANSMISSION FROM THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION.

Between 11 and 14 april 2016, you could receive SSTV (Slow Scan Television) pictures from the International Space Station (ISS).

The frequency was 145.800 MHz. Notwithstanding I have no ideal antenna used, I could receive some photos or partial pictures:

I decoded these signals with the SSTV RX program by ON6MU: http://users.belgacom.net/hamradio/rxsstv.htm. The mode was "PD180":
