ARISSAT-1 SSTV Image (Filtered)

Hey look! It's Earth! I think...

This is the first SSTV image I've ever captured. It was sent from ARISSat-1 at 2011-09-25T18:47:11Z and recorded on my computer using a Yaesu VX-8DR and a homebrew j-pole I recently constructed. Yeah, it looks like crap, but... well... IT'S FROM SPACE!

The reason it craps out at the end was because of doppler shift, and the fact that I'm not dynamically tuning my radio to account for it. I guess I need to get a computer-controlled radio next... And a good yagi.
