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.

Here’s my first weather satellite image decoded on December 3, 2020, as NOAA 18 passes over the Philippines.
