OK, I'm "inspired". I went out on the web and downloaded a couple
of the SSTV programs to try, but the programs seemed to default
to a mode that didn't give viewable pictures. I went back and read 
all the messages posted over the last week or so, but couldn't find 
where anyone mentioned the name of the format used for the MIR 
pictures. I got a fairly good signal coming in through the sound 
blaster, but being new to SSTV I wasn't sure how to set up the 
timing parameters. I have done a lot of APT wefax in the past, and 
some of the parameters sound similar to wefax parameters.  
Anyway, how does the SSTV compare to APT, and is an APT card 
of any use for SSTV? Which of the modes listed in the SSTV 
software should I use for the MIR pictures? TIA
