Anybody doing SSTV?

KG9LD Member ✭✭
I've got a used 6500 on the way and have downloaded Smartsdr Mac. I have looked all over the web before asking here but has anybody found a Mac SSTV program that will integrate with Smartsdr Mac? If so, which program and if you don't mind a pointer to a link to get it to be used with Smartsdr would be great.

73's and thanks in advance

    If you're planning on doing digital, whether SSTV, WSJT-X, or something else, you're going to need some kind of audio routing program. I use LOOPBACK by Rogue Amoeba, but there are several others.

    Once you have that setup, any SSTV program that can output to a soundcard will be able to output to SmartSDR for Mac. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of SSTV programs that support Macs. Black Cat Systems (a long-time Mac developer) has Black Cat SSTV (https://www.blackcatsystems.com/software/sstv.html) and there is an older software package called MultiScan 3B (https://www.qsl.net/kd6cji/) but I know many have had issues with it and I'm not even sure if it will run on the newer Macs.

    MultiScan 3B will run under MacOS 10.15 (Catalina), but I suspect it will be toast under MacOS 11 :-( I use MacloggerDX to talk to the Flex and Vox looks after PTT.

    Thanks guys. I appreciate the help. I'll try and see if I can get an SSTV program running with LOOPBACK.
