15:21 Found something else to play with today. New Digital SSTV mode called KG-STV. Here's a screen shot. Captured 4 pics ok, but like the one you see here, there are lots of pixels missing. I'ts like digital tv reception wise, as when the signal drops to a certain level it just dissapeares completely. At least with analogue you still get some sort of picture. Still, something else to play with.
Unfortunately the JASTA contestants were all over the frequency most of the time, so lucky to get anything i guess. I've just discovered that JASTA actually stands for Japan Amateur SSTV Association, and the contest is running from the 1st of this month to the 31st *sigh*. Going to be a long month.
