Rest in peace my Elemer Mak SV1BSX.
We well miss you on air and on the list.
My condolences goes to all EU-AMSAT,AMSAT BB lists members
and to his family.
God bless your soul.
I was able to catch 3 nice photos from the ISS as it passed over this afternoon.
In the middle of one of them, the antennas where resetting the the other side, but still got most of it.
Is there some way of "fixing them up" after the down load?
It looks like the others are much smoother than the ones I got.
Now if I could only catch them on the repeater....someday.
I have 5 rooms left in the AMSAT block for Dayton. I have to send the list
to the hotel in 2 weeks, So if you are planning on staying with us, please
call me as soon as possible (301-589-6062)

After reading some of the posts about the SSTV on AO-51 I decided to give it
a try. I downloaded and installed MMSSTV and waited for a pass. There was a
good 40 degree pass over San Angelo, Texas beginning at about 00:14 UTC. I
connected my radio's data jack to my computer with my USB adapter and
recorded the pass with my digital voice recorder. Lucky I did as nothing
showed up on the computer via the data jack connection. I used my Elk
Antenna to receive the signals.
After the pass I brought everything back into the house and connected the
voice recorder's ear jack to the computer's mic jack. After adjusting the
volume so MMSSTV wasn't complaining about an overload I ran the recording.
MMSSTV was in Auto Rx Mode and changed to Robot 36 as it received the
The image isn't very clear, but at least I was able to receive something.
If anyone would care to look at the image and help me identify why it is not
clearer it would be appreciated. It has been uploaded to my photobucket
account at the following URL:

Greetings all. ISS just passed 10 mins ago transmitting a SSTV image of NA1SS. Not sure if I can post this with a .jpeg image attached, but it is attached for anyone that wants to see what we received here in SoCal on MMSSTV.

I've been looking at wsjt for EME stuff, but I just can't get it to
work. It won't compile, throwing strings of errors, and the binary
package crashes immediately on startup. Emails to K1JT's arrl.net
address don't seem to be answered (although perhaps he's busy).
