A RTL-SDR compatible receiver and decoder application for the Meteor M2 weather satellite
RTL-SDR.com reports info from Neoklis (5B4AZ) on his recently completed project which is a RTL-SDR compatible receiver and decoder application for the Meteor M2 weather satellite. It is a combination of other open source programs and he writes:
I combined the recently released Meteor-M2 LRPT demodulator by Davide Belloli (dbdexter-dev), and the older image decoder (translated to C) released by Artem Litvinovich (artlav), with relevant code from my own “sdrx” SDR Receiver application to create a complete monolithic Meteor-M2 Receiver and Image Decoder application, “glrpt”.
Neoklis’ glrpt application is available on his website www.5b4az.org under the “Weather Imaging -> Meteor M LRPT Receiver” menu. The application is open source.
