NOAA APT Image Breakdown

The 'raw' decoded image.

I've been playing around with my RTL-SDR rig a lot recently, with the latest project being the reception and download of weather images from overflying NOAA satellites. I'll do a tutorial on this soon. But for the moment, I'm just excited to finally get clean images! If you want to download the audio file for yourself, you can do so below. After downloading the file, you can use wxtoimg to decode and view things. The satellites provide a variety of data, both visible and infrared. Check out some of the main options below.
