handy, It's powerfull,
It's easy to use and It's FREE!
does RX-SSTV do?
RX-SSTV is an
easy and back to basics SSTV decoding
program. It automatically saves
received SSTV-images (any supported
mode is detected automatically too)
and supports DSP.

Because SWL's don't need TX, this
part of the program can be left out.
No cumbersome settings for com-ports,
ptt interfaces and no accidental
transmissions by activating the TX by
mistake! A totally harmless program
for even the youngest of SWL's who
want to discover the world of digital
communications, like SSTV.
Still, why no TX? Why? Primary
because there are so many, many SSTV
programs out there that do a great
job receiving and transmitting
SSTV, but none for the SWL (short
wave listener) or for people that
have no HAM license, tech-students in
Also ideal for receiving SSTV from
the International Space Station ISS!
Is why by default Robot-36 mode is
used in the program. However, the
program will detect any available
SSTV-mode that it receives and
activate the automated saving
process. You won't miss any received

W5KWQ aboard ISS for his extra efforts to
communicate with fellow HAM's, setting up
the HAM-equipment for SSTV, repeater
mode, aprs and so much more!
