Weather Satellite Images

These are images that I receive directly from the weather satellites. They are low orbiting NOAA sats that come over a couple times each day. I receive the signals with a scanner type radio, and a small antenna, and feed the sound signal into my computer where it is converted to a photo with the freeware program WXSAT. It is easy to do, a cheap police band scanner and 2 ft all-band antenna is all that is required, and you need to know when the satellites will pass over you. I add the map grid with Adobe Photoshop.
