ARISS Apollo-Soyuz Commemorative Diploma


The ARISS commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the joint Apollo-Soyuz mission is going quite well. Some absolutely beautiful pictures have been posted on the ARISS SSTV image gallery. See:

Kudos to all on the great reception!

Also, fantastic efforts on ISS and in Dallas Texas yesterday for the Moon
Day/Frontiers of Flight Museum contact. It was fitting to have a US school

MMSSTV has a slant fix and resync function

If you're using MMSSTV after you initially decode the image you can then click the Resync tab and there is a Smiley icon that if you left click it does slant fix, and if you right click it does resync, or something like that. Read the manual there are several functions to fix issues like this. The only caveat is that you can't do it after you've closed the app or received a new image, it has to be done after you first receive it. This is why it helps to record the audio. You can always rerun the audio through the app with different settings, or run fixes on it while the audio data is in memory.

Hello KB0ZUU,

Can you tell us how the radio with the soundcard is connected?
How high was the audio level in the signal meter in the SSTV software?
I asume the audio level was a bit too high.

Distorted image

I am in southern Iowa. I received 7 images. I looked at your image, and it looks similar to one of mine that seemed to go out of sync. By chance was the pass that you were referring to on 7/19/15 about 3:03 AM, or 0803z? If so, then the same happened to me as well. Link to my image at that specific time:
