It’s just a list of frequencies.
Thank you for this helpful post.
would like to know what would be a good software for sstv that is inexpensive and easy to use …thank you john n4jdl
Mmsstv. It’s good and free
Try MMSSTV – it’s free.
N4JDL – Google MMSSTV. It’s a free download.
MMSSTV for Windows, free and QSSTV for Linux, free, that I am familiar with.
I just compiled QSSTV v. 9.4.4 in Debian 9, and it works in a minute. Free download. Of course, need to learn more about and maybe to fine tune some params. But it works from the box.
I just compiled in 18.04LTS. Not had many great results so far but it is managing to pull in images – just need to find out what settings are best for radio.
Few days ago it received well on 80m. Today bad condx on 20m, but will try later on 40m. Seems that version 9.4.4 has some bugs, it does not load image to send from a folder I chose for that. Instead it looks into ‘stock’ folder, dunno why.
145.500 MHz 2m is not SSTV calling frequency, that is for voice. It’s 144.500 according to RSGB band plans. Made me look like a right idiot when I was sending SSTV out on the FM calling frequency.
In the USA 146.520 is FM voice calling frequency. Not sure about in the UK or anywhere else. 145.500 is recommended in USA for SSTV NFM along with 145.600 and 144.550 for SSB SSTV.
Writer did state for readers to consult their nations “band plan”.
Hope this helps. I hope to work you someday from Pennsylvania to UK ?
In UK 144.500 is FM SSTV calling ,145.500 is FM Voice calling de M0JFE
These are for use in the USA, that should have been more articulated in the post.
