Editorial review


Margie Smeer Senior editor

MMSSTV is an amateur radio (or ham radio) application aimed at those interested in radio techniques.
With this SSTV (slow scan television) utility, images can be sent and received using a computer, a keying circuit and a ham radio. The ham radio can be VHF or HF. SSTV, also known as narrowband television, is a method of transmitting and receiving static pictures via radio.
The program offers several useful options, such as auto slant adjust, auto mode select, Morse ID and others. The view options include spectral display (FFT or FM demodulator), spectral display range, spectral trail, sensitivity and response. A digital scope is also available among the viewing options. Thumbnail browsing is fast and OLE support is ensured. Setting up the audio levels for receiving and transmitting will require some experimenting, just as the case is with other pieces of software too. Several SSTV modes can be chosen, including Martin 1 and 2 and Scottie 1 and 2. Once SSTV signal is found, manual tuning can be performed easily enough.
MMSSTV is a slow-scan television utility for transmitting and receiving data using the radio frequency spectrum.
