Greetings friends and followers around the World! 73 Seasons blessings and good will and health to each and all! Merry Christmas!

I received a nice diploma on Christmas day for receiving SSTV images which commemorate 20 years of onboard amateur radio activity. It was easy enough to obtain via ARISS SSTV Award link. 

Here is an earlier one from the Sputnik series.

Its great fun receiving images from ISS and can easily be decoded using MMSTV free software on your pc. There are a few apps for phones and tablets that work well also. Check out my latest video as I decode ISS SSTV images if you want to see how easy it is.

 Also if you like that you might want to decode weather satellite images which is a very similar method apart from you need a slightly more complicated decoder which again is free and is called WXtoImg

Above is a recent image from NOAA 18 below is a video showing how I successfully decoded the weather image.

Keep yourself amused this Christmas as we all stay safe, have a go at decoding its lots of fun... Merry Christmas, 73, see you soon! Be healthy!
