Tonight's Weather from NOAA - 15

The receiving is done with the Yaesu FT-847 Transceiver and IOIo Antenna.
I managed to get a good image earlier this evening using the above setup. The received image shows the north Coast of Africa up to the Arctic Circle, as you can see there is a lot of cloud rolling in over the U.K. You can also see the "Grey Line" as the Sun is shining to West. I received the above WX image on FM, from my ground station at 16.45 utc on 137.500 MHz + or - Doppler, courtesy of NOAA - 15 Weather Satellite.

That's a good pic, Simon, considering the compromise antenna and Rx. I used to do Wxsat receiving myself. There are a couple of articles about it at g4ilo.com. I suspect if you made a QFH antenna such as the one I made you could get even better results.

Hi Julian,

I had a quick look at your QFH antenna, pretty cool. I intend to have a go at making one soon, I have seen similar designs and I am looking forward to tinkering again.

I enjoy receiving the NOAA WX Sat images and have had amazing responses to the Youtube WX videos I did a while back.
It is another one of those interesting twists of the hobby h.i and I hope to continue learning all about these many wonderful offshoots of being a Ham.

Look forward to hearing from you again soon and I will be reading your posts via Planet Ham.

73 Have fun, catch you agn soon.

Simon
