First SSTV picture from the chipstar. Resolution is 40px*30px.
It´s sent in standard BW8 format. Only 30 lines are sent - one line contains 120 pixels representing 40 blue/green/red pixels each.
Now I am working on a converter to melt them together into a RGB image.
Transmission time is two seconds on a standard audio line.

It´s funny: Just holding the handheld radio in front of the PC microphone is enough to receive that picture within 2 seconds
