This is an awesome event for anyone interested in radio because all you need is a receiver capable of 145.80MHz (even an SDR dongle will do) and some decoding software. No #AmateurRadio license required.
Plus, Slow Scan TV is just plain cool.
@Zach It's on the VHF band, and it's still images encoded as audio. No voice components unfortunately. I'm also not sure if the average short-wave radio goes up to VHF anymore. I had an old radio that received _everything_ back in the day.
As for decoding it, there's free software that will take the audio and convert it into images, either from your microphone (spotty) or an audio cable from the radio to the PC.
A Mastodon instance for radio amateurs, SWL or anyone interested about radio amateurism.
Registration is open to anyone interested in the hobby or radio in general.
