I got started with amateur radio by listening to weather satellites with an SDR and “downloading” images from them (like the one on the home page from Meteor M2). Then I had heard about and participated in the International Space Station Slow Scan TV (SSTV) events! It was exciting to be able to “download” images from the space station as it passed overhead, however I always hoped they would be “live” images and not canned but recently they are canned. Thus this project was born. It is my hope to launch a high altitude balloon with a SSTV transmitter to broadcast “live” images of the Earth while in flight! I hope many people will be able to help out by listening for the signal and uploading any images to this website at the “Post SSTV Image (Click Here to visit)” page!
