Ralph had an app on his 'droid phone that seemed to do a pretty good job.  I was just wondering if anyone had a better one or if I could get the name of the one Ralph was using.

ISS sighting information. One pass per day it appears for our area. Gary, I'm not sure about Android specific apps, but you could record the audio and play it into MMSSTV on a Winders PC.

ARISS is planning another of their popular Slow Scan Television (SSTV) experiment events. Transmissions are scheduled to begin Friday, Feb. 8 at 14:00 UTC and run through Sunday, Feb. 10 at 18:30 UTC. SSTV operations is a process by which images are sent from the International Space Station (ISS) via ham radio and received by ham operators, shortwave listeners and other radio enthusiasts on Earth, similar to pictures shared on cell phones using twitter or instagram. 
When this event becomes active, SSTV images will be transmitted from the ISS at the frequency of 145.80 MHz using the SSTV mode of PD120 and can be received using ham radio equipment as simple as a 2 meter handheld radio or a common shortwave or scanner receiver the covers the 2 meter ham band. After connecting the audio output of the radio receiver to the audio input of a computer running free software such as MMSSTV, the SSTV images can be displayed. 
Transmissions will consist of eight NASA On The Air (NOTA)
images (see In additional, four ARISS commemorative images will also be included.
Once received, Images can be posted and viewed by the public at In addition, you can receive a special SSTV ARISS Award for posting your image. Once the event begins, see details at .

Please note that the event is dependent on other activities, schedules and crew responsibilities on the ISS and are subject to change at any time.
