WX APT works


#1

Bill Tracey (kd5tfd for all you hams) wins a beer and pizza for being
the first to use the WX APT (weather satellite) software in the demo
directory and to report success to me.

(wx_apt_recv.py)

Bill is working on a feedline, preamp issue which makes this picture
just a little noisy but it is clear the demodulator works. I was using
his movement towards getting this going as a goad to myself. My
quadrafilar helix will be finished and up in April. My preamp and feed
line are already in place.

Bill and I both use or will use WxtoImg ( http://www.wxtoimg.com/ ).
The political boundaries on the image received using the usrp and tuner
may be viewed at the link below were put on the image by using wxtoimg
and its knowing the correct time and the orbital elements, etc.
