Recently an RTL-SDR.com reader by the name of Pete wrote in to let us know about a comprehensive tutorial that he has written aboutÂ setting up NOAA and Meteor M2 weather satellite decoding in Ubuntu Linux with an RTL-SDR.
Peteâ€™s tutorial starts from a fresh install of Ubuntu and uses GQRX, GNU Radio Companion, WxtoIMG and the MeteorM2 decoding tools. He shows how to set up the audio piping within Linux, how to run theÂ MeteorM2 LRPT Offline decoder Windows tool in Wine, a Linux Windows emulator and how to use WxtoIMG together with GQRX.
The NOAA and Meteor M2 weather satellites transmitÂ images that they have taken of the earth. With an RTL-SDR and appropriateÂ antenna you canÂ receive these images. On this blog we have Windows tutorials on receiving NOAA and Meteor M2 satellites.
