In the previous post, I have mentioned that I am currently engaged in amateur radio activities, particularly, satellite communications. At the moment, I am only receiving transmissions from the International Space Station (ISS). Shown below is the gear I use to send and receive SSTV images.
Equipment for Sending and Receiving SSTV Images
- Transmitter (Motorola CP1660) + DIY connector (smart phone’s line out to transmitter’s microphone in) + encoder (smart phone with SSTV Encoder app)
- Receiver (Motorola CP1660) + DIY connector (transmitter’s line out to smart phone’s microphone in) + decoder (smart phone with Robot 36 app)
