Receiving NOAA Satellite Image

NOAA satellites transmit weather images in APT format at 137 MHz which may be received using just a VHF antenna, a software-defined radio (SDR), and a decoder such as Wxtoimg running on a laptop.

My first weather satellite image decoded on December 3, 2020, as NOAA 18 passes over the Philippines.

  1. Very Cool! Been doing this back during the 90s. Was playing with wxtoimg and mixw . Not everyone is interested with weather. Now am enjoying tracking weather and storms and had my own weather station. Enjoy and 73s W1MDM-13/DU9HGF
