Video: Video: How to pull images from satellites in orbit using an SDR and double cross antenna (NOAA 15,18,19 and METEOR M2)

Over the past 2 months, me and my friend Artem have been building antennas to receive signals from weather satellites as they pass overhead. This video chronicles our progress through this project and goes through some of the science involved in working with radio and receiving transmissions. We explore how dipoles work and how to build them, and how we built our final double cross antenna. We used an SDR (software defined radio) called a HackRF to do the work of interpreting the received signals and then decoded them with some special software. We pulled images from 4 satellites: NOAA 15, 18 and 19 as well as METEOR M2. The satellites broadcast immediately as they take the images and no images are stored, so we're likely the only ones on earth with these images __________________________________________________________________ Artem Litvinovich and some of his work: Youtube (theartlav): https://www.youtube.com/user/val3tra Sound camera: https://www.ribbonfarm.com/2016/06/29/the-daredevil-camera/ Thermal camera made from heat seeking missile parts: https://www.ribbonfarm.com/2016/05/12/artem-vs-predator/ Other awesome stuff: http://orbides.org/ __________________________________________________________________ My articles: https://medium.com/@justinatkin/ Other social media links: Patreon:https://www.patreon.com/thethoughtemporium Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thethoughtemporium/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thethoughtemporium/ Website: http://thethoughtemporium.com/ __________________________________________________________________ Photo gallery: https://www.facebook.com/pg/thethoughtemporium/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1920871801482540 __________________________________________________________________ Satellite tracking site: www.n2yo.com Satellite tracking software (orbitron): http://www.stoff.pl/ Build a Helical (QFH) antenna: http://www.g4ilo.com/qfh.html Building a double cross antenna: http://www.qsl.net/py4zbz/DCA.pdf Full guide on how to do this: http://www.rtl-sdr.com/rtl-sdr-tutorial-receiving-noaa-weather-satellite-images/
