So you've got an SDR, and want to try something new? How about weather satellite image reception? Sounds pretty cool, but that little antenna that came with your SDR isn't quite cutting it. In this video, I build a QFA antenna from copper wire, a bit of coax, and a piece of drain pipe. Plans used for this build: It was brought to my attention that ..
Emboldened by the success of his Raspberry PIrate radio, Matt indulges in some more radio hacking by building a specialized QFH antenna and a briefcase form-factor satellite receiver in an attempt to intercept "faxes" from OUTER SPAACEEE!!! Connect with Matt on the element14 community: Project TIROS is a self-contained, Raspberry Pi-based satellite..
This is a follow up video to my build of a quadrifilar helix antenna (QFH) for receiving images from NOAA weather satellites. The results were excellent and I'm very happy with the antenna. QFH Build video:
You are looking at a NOAA weather image setup powered by solar panels and batteries. I am using a Raspberry Pi 3 with the Jesse image on it. I am using a LNA hooked up to a FM reject filter to block out the FM radio. Using a dongle. I am powering the by by 4 12 volt batteries and solar controller. I'm using a 12 volt to 5 volt 3 amp adapter to powe..
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 h..
Hi Guys, This is part 5 of my build log dealing with the GPS areas of my SD Card GPS & MP3 Player project. This video made generally about building a QFH antenna, which I think contains enough information to get anyone else started.
My homemade QFH antenna make from 3/8” soft copper. Here is the link I used to make my QFH antenna. ........
