Been a long while since I played with satellites or even the ISS for that matter. In fact 2 meters has taken a total backseat for me as it no longer thrills me as far as APRS or even repeaters. IRLP nodes as well just don't do it like they used to, combine that with only one telephone provider (Thunder Bay Telephone) and major dropouts etc on the IRLP it makes it no fun on nodes.
So turned the
FT857 on today after reading about the ISS sending SSTV pictures down to
earth. Using a dual band vertical at 25' and using MMSSTV I was able to
copy these pictures this afternoon. (Monday afternoon in Ontario)
So kinda made my day to see the pictures up on the screen when I got back into the shack.
