I've just happened to come across an automated transmission on 14.230 stating "Please avoid using analog or digital SSTV on this system" -- I researched it a bit more on the forum and found that any digital mode is not allowed. How long has this been the case, and why? I remember a while back i received a hamsphere SSTV image that was automated, just wondering why this is not allowed anymore.
at the moment, Digital Modes are not allowed. I think RTTY should be not allowed too.
Main reason, I suppose, is bandwith required by Digital Modes, especially SSTV, causing splatter.
I have heard some automated digital mode transmission, generated by HamSphere server, somewhere on 17 meters band some week ago, but I was not able to decode it...
