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 ...
