SSTV allows ham radio operators to send images to each other as audio signals. These audio signals are transmitted over high frequency (HF) bands using single-sideband modulation (SSB). Each signal describes a single, small bitmap image. An operator can record the audio and open it in an SSTV decoding program to view the image the audio describes.

An HRZ file is an image that has been rendered from an SSTV audio signal. It is unknown what program or programs produce HRZ files. However, a few image viewers allow users to open HRZ files and view the images they contain.

How to open an HRZ file

You can open an HRZ file in XnViewMP (multiplatform), Logipole Konverter (Windows), or ImageMagick (multiplatform).

How to convert an HRZ file

You can use XnViewMP, Logipole Konverter, or ImageMagick to convert HRZ files to other image formats. For example, ImageMagick can convert HRZ files to the following formats:
