The best part about mastodon, is that I can freely tell anyone to go sit on a cactus.

I can now see a lot of the image compression idiosyncrasies persist over the BPSK stream, like long chunks of a particular byte, which could make decoding problematic. It would probably be best to zip the image first before encoding it as base64.

Encoding images to tape using SSTV is problematic because speed is neither constant or precise. So I’m now trying to store an image encoded as base64 over BPSK1000. We’ll see what happens.
