RPiWXsat

The main aim of the project was to use a Raspberry Pi to receive weather satellite images.

So I spent some time playing around with the Raspberry Pi NOAA Weather Satellite Receiver by haslettj on with some success on https://www.instructables.com/Raspberry-Pi-NOAA-Weather-Satellite-Receiver/

Using a Raspberry Pi 3B and a Nooelec NESDR Mini 2+ receiver. Images were a bit noisy but viewable.

Next stage was to be able to view the images via the internet, which was done by running a small Apache webserver on the RPi and allowing you to view the files stored in a directory.
While this was ok it was a bit clunky and you needed to download the whole file which could be a bit on the large side.

While the Disconne antenna was “ok” it wasn’t really up to the job as it is a generic frequency range antenna so it was time for an upgrade.
