The Daily Mail reports that 22-year-old Radoslaw Karwacki received the recent amateur radio Slow Scan Television (SSTV) transmissions from the ISS
Radoslaw (Radek) used an RTL-SDR dongle costing about £10 ($15) to receive the SSTV signal on 145.800 MHz FM during the weekend of January 31 to February 1. The antenna was a simple dipole and he used the free SDRSharp and MMSSTV software to receive and display the image.
‘These images are not transmitted regularly. I was really lucky to receive them, because it was my first experience with this kind of equipment,’ he told MailOnline.
‘I blindly tuned in on that frequency during ISS flyby and happened to receive the signal.’
