Some weather satellite images I've received from polar orbiting
sats like NOAA 12,14,15,16 and the russian satellites Resurs and Meteor.
They are received at 137-138MHz with a turnstile antenna and a qha antenna, I used to have an Eggbeater2 antenna but the weather was too harsh.
Theese pictures are received with my Icom PCR-1000 scanner using 50kHz FM filter which is perfect for this kind of reception, the audiosignal is then decoded
with computer software (using the soundcard as A/D converter) like WxSat & Satsignal which in turn decode the pictures.
Theese are my satellite pictures from Meteosat 7 , a geostationary satellite continiously transmitting pictures 24hours/day.
For this I use my Icom R-8500 radio since the transmission is on 1691/1694.5MHz , using my old 1.8meter satellite dish (see below)
Radios and antennas / satellite dishes.
Also my Drake's and other valve radios, and some old renovation projects.
DSP software, radio astronomy, SETI station / Project Argus and weak-signal detection.
Finally my dedicated 3 meter (10') dish is up and running, at 1420MHz and 1665MHz bands.
