M1KTA announced he will be QRV as E51KTA on MP73-N narrow band SSTV from 10-20 March. It would be cool to at least receive him. Transmitting on the 10.132 MHz NBTV frequency is a problem as we are not allowed to use that mode below 10.140 Mhz as far as I know the rules in the Netherlands. I never heard of this narrow band TV mode before but is sounds interesting. You can receive it with MMSSTV. Personally in his situation I would prefer FSQ as it has message capability and at the same time you can send pictures with (almost) the same quality as MP73N.

A nice page to read about NBTV is the K2UK's Quick and Dirty Guide to Narrow Band TV wikipage.

I was not aware this NBTV seems to be populair as there is even a N-SSTV group you can find it here:

I will be monitoring 10.132 MHz SSTV at least this weekend and hopefully I'll catch a picture....


  1. Hallo Bas, programma MMSSTV, de nieuwste uitvoering 1.11G gedownload en op MP73N gezet. Ik doe met je mee en laat hem ook komende dagen meelopen. Niet continue, want met dit mooie weer werk ik ook veel portable. Succes daar, ik hou je op de hoogte van mijn bevindingen.

  2. Volgens mij is 1.13A de nieuwste versie Hans. Maar voor de werking maakt het niet uit. Ik monitor nog steeds maar heb tot nu toe alleen ruis ontvangen. 73, Bas

  3. Hallo Bas, ik heb ook alleen maar ruis ontvangen. Ik ben gestopt met monitoren. 73 Hans, PE1BVQ.

  4. QRV de E51KTA MP-73-N trying 10.132 and 10.144. 72 Dom M1KTA/E51KTA
