me and my friend we are SW listeners since quite a while.
We quite enjoyed receiving a bit of this and that everywhere, epecially SSTV and HF-Fax.
Recently I was trying to have a go with Satellites, some people swear that it's quite possible to occasionaly pick up something even with a hand-held scanner.
Actually we have one that is a Yaesu VR-120D.
I am using the program "Satbuster" to track when I have a satellite "above my head" (actually my location is around Carmathen UK).
I saw that for example NOAA12 and NOAA15 can get quite close to here in certain times *(870 Km).
The question is "how do they sound when they transmit down images ?"
I did not find any sound sample anywhere, do they sound like the "normal" HF-FAX you can hear around ?
How do I tune to them ?
Is it possible to receive them using a program like JVComm ?
Thanks lot in advance for any help.
