RE: DIY NOAA 15, 18, and 19 Satellite Images with how to - Tuesday

in DIYHub9 months ago

I tipped this post because my vote isn't worth enough to really show my appreciation. In all my astronomy, space, and electronic geekiness mailing lists and forum, I can't believe that I had NO IDEA I could get these signals from NOAA and the ISS. As a Linux user, my OS already has dozens of software packages for dealing with these signals and hardware, and I think I'm going to have to dive right into this bad boy!

Thank you, thank you, and thank you again!

Your welcome! A couple other sites to check out:
https://www.rtl-sdr.com/ Site dedicated to SDR
http://www.websdr.org/ Web based SDRs from around the world with various frequencies available

I used Websdr to follow the ISS around the world to catch all the 12 image signals as well as my SDR and antenna.

Some SSTV sites:

http://users.belgacom.net/hamradio/rxsstv.htm SSTV decoding software
https://hamsoft.ca/pages/mmsstv.php Another SSTV decoding software

I have found that a bandwidth of 50MHz is about right to fully catch the NOAA signals without having to follow the doppler shift.

There are other brands of SDR out there and some that do much more than mine.
