My newest project during the COVID Quarantine has been focused on NOAA Satellite images.
I recently came across a Reddit article that talked about how an RTL-SDR dongle can download weather images from passing NOAA Satellites. I was super interested and had to try it. I found several articles from different people explaining their setup with Raspberry Pi units and how they automated the process.
My Raspberry Pi with an RTL-SDR dongle and a small (currently outdoor) antenna, captures and decodes the broadcasts from the passing Weather Satellites.
It’s still a work in progress, this is a rough working setup at the moment.
