I decided to try the MMSSTV software for the first time. Since it was -13C here in the central USA I didn't want to stand outside with my ArrowII. So I connected the computer to my scanner and using a simple homebrew wideband double bowtie biconical dipole I gave it a shot. The antenna isn't in the best location since I live in an apartment, but am still happy with my first ISS SSTV image.
I received this PIC on 20-12-2008 at 16:39utc (Orbit# 57787) with ISS at 4 degrees elevation from my QTH at KG44BD. 73s Keith, ZS6TW
