WX images from this afternoons first pass of NOAA-19. First is the “pristine” image, which is basically unprocessed and close to data received from the satellite.
The second image is a processed version of the “pristine” image.
With another processed image showing, sea surface temperatures.
I was able to track the spacecraft basically from horizon to horizon with little terrestrial interference on this pass.
Our APT satellite weather picture capability has matured quite a but in the last week or two. At the moment I am still busy fine tuning the receiver we got in kit form from Miroslav Gola. The results using the kit receiver from Miroslav is quite a bit better than using my handheld radio.
Another change I made was moving from WXSat to WXtoImg, which makes a remarkable difference. WXtoImg has an impressive lists of features and so far I have been able to generate better quality images using this software.
Below is weather satellite images I received from the NOAA-19 satellite and decoded using WXtoImg. Images are from 7 July 2011.
