Raspberry Pi NOAA Satellite Receiver


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!!!

Project TIROS is a self-contained, Raspberry Pi-based satellite signal reception system designed to automatically download images and data from NOAA’s POES spacecraft as they pass overhead and display the data on an integrated LCD panel. In this video, Matt will walk through how to set up an RTL-SDR module with a Raspberry Pi for automated satellite downloads as well as how to design and build a quadrifilar helical antenna for polar-orbiting signal reception.

  1. These type black sdr they little bit off freq they do on 137
    you need goto into settings in the text file the hads noaa 15,18,19 change them if anybody hads them please do video on it use gqrx try get freq put in the comments or make a video i can hear it east of rock springs,wy 420 miles it flew between denver,co i can hear it on mini umbellra antenna i can see the signal on noaa15 137.6200mhz,137.658.000,137.555.000,137.795.100 i can't even hear it beep signal on wxtoimg.

  2. For the jackposts on RS-232/VGA connectors, get yourself a Victorinox Swiss Army Cybertool. The bit holder on it is perfect for undoing/doing these up.

  3. 20:10 seriously Raspberry PI with no backup batteries any kind ! it's cool product btw but with that giant suite case I thought you wont need to mains power at all .

  4. Yes I've built satellite receivers for both POES (NOAA 15,18 & 19) and GOES-16 weather satellites. However, I found using a raspberry pi can be problematic. The Pi gets overheated even with a fan and would reboot because of power drops even using an PC power supply. When it is running it kept dropping packets and I would lose hours of images from the GOES-16 Satellite.
    For my GOES system I dumped the Pi and went with a full PC running Ubuntu and all my problems with overheating, power loss and dropped packets went away.

  5. Actually cringed when i saw that poor coax cable end.
    Then the solder job to the bnc.
    There are better ways.
    And proper tools for trimming the ends of coax.
    Rf is not like electricity it will go places you wouldnt think.
    Do it right and you get better results.

  6. I am trying
    to access raspberry pi, which is behind a Nat ‘ed network from internet without
    port forwarding and third-party website. The functionality I am looking is
    something like what dataplicity is doing. I am noob
    to networking and python. But have strong coding knowledge with Microsoft .NET
    and Angular 2 and higher. I would like to host my own website with this
    functionality. Could you please help me with this? Also dataplicity’s
    client agent can be found at dataplicity-agent
