Want to display or send SSTV transmissions, without using a bulky computer? SSTV Pad lets you decode and display Ham (Amateur) Radio SSTV (Slow Scan TV) transmissions. Just connect your device to an HF radio (or even set it next to the radio's speaker), tune in an SSTV frequency, and watch the pictures. SSTV Pad decodes all of the popular SSTV modes, including Robot, Scottie, Martin, and more.
Decoding of SSTV transmissions begins automatically as soon as the start of image audio signals are detected, and the image format is automatically selected. Manual control is also available for use when receiving conditions are poor. Timing signals (phase and skew) can be adjusted to compensate for mismatches with the sending station.
Received images can be saved - including automatically as they are received. You can leave the app running unattended, and come back to view all the received images. You can review saved images, as well as send them via email, and use iTunes file sharing to transfer them to your computer.
You can also transmit images, taken from your saved photos or taken with your device's camera. Text, such as your callsign, can be added to the sent image.
Buy your copy right now, and start decoding and displaying SSTV transmissions in minutes. Just set your iPhone or iPad next to the radio speaker, and watch the pictures come rolling in.
What's New in Version 1.3
Added the ability to transmit SSTV pictures
Basic but does the job
The latest update has included the ability to send images too. I don't know why this was not included from day one. Now I can test it between my ipad and iPhone.
As someone else mentioned the controls are too sensitive. You slide the slider to straighten the image but you cannot lift your finger off the control without it going w only again.
It seems to handle every SSTV format going
Excellent idea for the ipad which works amazingly well. Has enough control to be simple enough for anyone to give it a go. Good work guys!
Thanks for the hard work, 73
