Some digital modes are really loved by OMs. Park yourself for a while on 14.070 kHz, and you'll be able to log dozens of PSK QSOs in half an hour. Other modes, like ROS, are quite new, and can count on a growing number of players. SSTV, despite being quite "historic", sees nowadays just a few disciples. Stay on 14.230 kHz for a couple days, and you'll be able to name them: EB5DZC, SP8LEP, RN3DL, IK0GDG, TA1EF, US1VS are in that gang. Very nice signals, and wonderful pieces of software around, like MMSSTV. The idea of sending images through the spectrum always charmed yours truly, and that's why I often have a radio on the twenty meters SSTV frequency to see what flows along the signals river. Doing this, to see not so many OM devoted to Slow Scan is sometimes disappointing. It feels like lots of licensed people are loosing a fun and fine chance to communicate. In the last days, however, the JASTA contest brought more life to the SSTV scene. At (local) night, some DX were also possible. I'm referring mainly to Arnaldo, PY4BL, who is quite regular, always with an impressive signal, and beautiful screenshots. Furthermore, the contest made available snags from more "exotic" (DX-wise) countries. On yours truly' screen passed, among others: UN7GHK, Bahyt, from Almaty in Kazakhstan; ZC4MIS, Micheal from the UK sovereign zone in Cyprus; EK3GM, Boris in Armenia, and three japanese SSTV musketeers, which I really am happy to have received, as they are pretty rare catches in "peace time". I'm referring to Maga, JP7BNO, Tadao, JN1VNW, and Ken JA4HI. Thanks to all of you, guys, for making this contest (which is underway at the moment I'm typing, with PD0ME who just acknowledged call by IK0GDG) interesting to follow. For you all, just a prayer: don't stop sending images when the contest will be over, ok?
