Frequencies for SSTV

On LF up to the lower part of UHF, i.e. between 160m and 70cm, the frequencies listed in the table below are often used for SSTV, i.e. Slow Scan Television. SSTV is a way for radio amateurs to transmit still video images (think of it as a photo) with a bandwidth no greater than that required for voice. For more information see Wikipedia.

The band plans allocate frequencies or frequency blocks where SSTV transmissions can take place, keep in mind the frequencies listed here are the internationally widely used ones. They may be different in each region or country, check with local authorities or national amateur radio associations.

The frequencies in the table are in MHz.
