We made some test with Robot 24 (OZ2MA) and Robot 72 (DK3WN) this morning. See the pictures here: http://www.dk3wn.info/p/?p=3537

That looks like KO6TZ's picture. I've seen it many times !
And it does NOT take too much audio to make the MMSSTV work. I can turn the volume down on my radio to where I can just hear it on the speaker, and that's enough. Louder is OK, as long as you don't crank it up where it's all distorted.

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 information.
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:
