RE: A SSTV TIP



Try a HiFi VCR.  Even a cheap one is good at recording this sort of 
thing.  I believe the reason is that the tape speed is controlled by a 
timing signal recorded with the audio on the tape as you record, which 
is used to control playback speed.  HiFi VCR is probably the best 
consumer-quality non-digital recording medium.  Connect your line audio 
out to the audio input jacks.  Ignore the video input.

Another advantage is the long record time and tapes are cheap.

Hi Scott,

I am curious, what kind of tape recorder did you use?

I queried the list a few days ago about my problem using an analog 
tape recorder for SSTV. The majority of the responses agreed that the 
inconsistent tape speed was the culprit of all the recorded frames to 
be out of synch. I had a local Ham who tried analog recordings of WX 
Satellite Pic's with the same bad results and used a VCR or camcorder 
to cure the problem. I lost over two dozen high=altitude balloon pics 
the same way. I will try the VCR/camcorder  next.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS
Thanks...73
Harry
