I have yet to get a chance to capture any of the images, but for the antenna
I would think that what works for the packet PMS would also work for the
images, I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong. I use an HT for packet and
I also think this is acceptable for the SSTV. You will need a cable toto go
from the radio to your sound card input jack. As far as software, that will
be dependant on the OS that you use on your computer. There are several
varieties available on the net and you should be able to find one that fits
your needs. Good luck!
