Automated APT weather satellite reception (Part 1)

Well, things are busy as ever at Chez Doz.

Keep a watchful eye out for forthcoming projects soon, including part 2 of this, which is going to show a completely self contained 137MHz APT Weather satellite receiver and antenna based around the raspberry Pi. It'll be a while as I'm busy building a self contained web based transmitter for the hospital radio at the moment, and the firmware is giving me a head ache!

Anyway, in the meantime, I've set up the wrong receiver (an Icom IC-R2), with the wrong antenna (a discone) in Evesham, and you can view the (unremarkable) reception on this website ...

Click on Evesham. The Cheltenham page isn't supported as yet.

Stay safe and stay tuned!

It appears don't allow "automated uploads" , and have closed my account. I'll make a new post when I find another solution.
