NOAA Weather imaging

Rate this Entry
OK, so in never ending quest to Nerdvana, I just tracked and downloaded this image directly from the weather Satellite NOAA-18 as it passed over head. Lots of noise in the image (The horizontal streaks), but one can clearly see the cloud cover over central Arizona and northern Baja. Need to calibrate the software a bit to get better images.

I used my Icom IC-7000 into my base VHF\UHF antenna. I see Quadifilar helical Antenna build in my future....

Nerdy yes, but ya gotta admit, pretty damn cool.

73, Rick
