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
This app may not look like much, but it's amazing! Works great for receiving and transmitting pictures via amateur Ham Radio. Now weather spotters in remote areas with out cell, or Internet service, can snap a picture of the situation; then send via HF Amateur Radio. I'm sure this would work with walkie talkies too, just not sure that's ok.
I only wish this app, would decode WX weather satellite imagery.
It works well
Works well with iPad 1, iPad 3, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4S. Application will TX/RX directly and over HF/VHF/UHF radios. I have an isolated cable on the way that connects directly to my 817ND and the iPad headset jack. I'll give it a try once it arrives. It's a little wonky on the auto-start, thus partial images sometimes = 4 stars
As stated before, it's crude, but it works. I wish the skew and phase sliders would adjust sensitivity the farther your finger is away from them like how it is in the Music app, but other than that I would say wonderful.
