Looks like this app has been greatly refined. It's now easy to load a pic from the gallery. It can save it as a wav file and you can stop it at anytime. It does nearly all of the most popular SSTV modes. Took me a while to figure out how to move text around. For not having any kind of instructions , this is a really good app. The only thing lacking is usb control for the ptt line. Would be way cooler if it could receive as well. Nicely done.
Wow! Amazing app works as advertised . Enjoyed first sstv qso on 14.230 last night both this and robot 36 five stars all you need is android and hf transciever. I used my 7300 and held speaker to mic! Worked great!!!!
Well I cant find the feature to let me add text, but my current tests are doing well. I cant wait to start getting my friends into it.
It only works sometimes. It almost always has an error trying to load the picture, and only works with certain ones. I can't find a pattern as to what works and what doesn't.
I used it with an Alba android system connected to my Ft60 Yaesu handheld by just a piece of Alba stereo to stereo 3.5mm Jack cable - no interface require to transmit sstv with this programme by activating mic-audio by half drawing out ft60 side of the cable. Also can use Robot 36 with plugs fully pushed in to both sides to receive. Hope more apps like this in the future. Have recently tried (July 2017) with Yaesu VX3 & VX6 with narrow "tortoise" line from Tesco & other stores - only 7 second delay at end of transmission and radio carrier goes off and one is ready to receive (on Robot36) - really simple. Very nearly as good as Kenwoods VCH1E that came out a few years ago! An auto picture take and transmit as a beacon sstv would be an interesting addition say every 3 minuites? However it has far more ready to use formats than the Kenwood VCH1E and its derivatives ever had! No doubt future updates will add more facilities when they come.
This is a wonderful app that makes you feel like an elite cold war spy.
