Receive Weather Satellite Images With Software-Defined Radio

Screenshot from 2015-07-26 11:57:38

Matt Gray has a great blog post on how to receive weather satellite images with a software-defined radio.  Using an inexpensive USB radio tuner Matt runs software that can control how the radio is tuned and use it to listen to weather satellites circling the earth above him.  Even with an inexpensive tuner and makeshift wire antenna Matt is still able to pull out some very interesting images from the satellite’s radio signals.  Check out the post for all the details on the software Matt used–nice work!
