Simple system for Monitoring Weather Satellites:

FM Receiver For 134 - 141MHz  

(A double conversion  superhetrodyne with pll)

IT'S EASY TO CAPTURE REALTIME IMAGES LIKE THIS DIRECTLY FROM SPACE ON YOUR PC!

 

A low cost, high performance, microcontroller driven, 10 channel receiver (scanner WXtoIMG) & Frequency Step Size 10 kHz at synthesizer... 

 

View of the module of Universal receiver FM for frequency range 134 - 141 MHz for reception of signals from meteo-satellite meteo-satellites NOAA and (METEOR) and from METEOSAT 7 & GOES (it is necessary to implement the converter 1691 MHz / 137,5 MHz)

This is the RX134141 MHz (WXTOIMG/RS232/PC-COM) as above but complete with all additional components required for full computer control :

1. Manual_Mode: Manuelle Wahl der Festfrequenzen oder Einstellen einer beliebigen Frequenz im 10kHz-Raster (134 - 141MHz) 

2. Manual_ScanMode: Manuelle Wahl über alle Satellitenfrequenzen  ( 137.20 .. 137.10 .. 137.40 .. 137.50 .. 137.62 .. 137.91 .. 137.30 .. 137.70 .. 137.80 .. 137.85

3 Auto_ScanMode: Automatischer Suchlauf über alle Satellitenfrequenzen mit Auto-Stop bei Empfang eines Satellitensignals 2400 Hz ( 137.20 .. 137.10 .. 137.40 .. 137.50 .. 137.62 .. 137.9125 .. 137.30 .. 137.70 .. 137.80 .. 137.85

4. WXtoIMG_ScanMode: Automatischer Suchlauf über alle Satellitenfrequenzen ( 137.20 .. 137.10 .. 137.40 .. 137.50 .. 137.62 .. 137.91 .. 137.30 .. 137.70 .. 137.80 .. 137.85 ) ... Kommunikationsadapter WXTOIMG SW - RS232 - PC-COM
