I have recently been realising a very long-held ambition to receive weather satelliet images from the NOAA spacecraft. I became the proud owner of a Funcube Dongle Pro at Christmas 2012 and have pressed this into service.

I will write more when I have time, but for now, the images are uploaded here in real-time: g6afy.info/wxsat

I am constantly updating my system and trying to improve it. It is susceptable to all sorts of interference but is reasonably stable now.

 

My next step is to connect the 80cm dish I have installed to receive the full-disc hi-res colour images from the geostationary sats run by Eumetsat. I am just awaiting the licence!
