Re: WX sat rcv

I too receive the weather satellites (NOAA-12, NOAA-14,
NOAA-15 [brand new!], Meteor 3-5, etc.) with a Radio
Shack scanner and my PC's sound card. Except that to
be totally difficult about it, I wrote my own software
for Linux (http://mypage.direct.ca/v/ve7ldh/wxsat.html).
Other hardware includes a wire dipole and a MAR-6 preamp.

Current experiments: Lindenblad antenna, BF961 preamp, better
receiver (heavily modified Cirkit WXsat receiver), synchronous
detection. Etc.

You can have lots of fun with this while waiting for P3D.
Neat pictures, too...
