- FTV is an MS-DOS program used to receive image
s from Weather Satellites and Terrestrial Facsimile Stations, text transmission
s from radio telex services, Morse code, as well as Amateur Radio FAX, SSTV, RTTY and CW signals. It can also be used to transmit FAX and SSTV. No external hardware, other than a radio, is required, as all the necessary signal processing is implemented in software.
- Atpdec is an open source program that decodes image
s transmitted by POES NOAA weather satellite series.
These satellites transmit continuously, among other things, medium resolution image
s of the earth on 137Mhz.
s could be easily received with an inexpensive antenna and dedicated receiver.
For more information about receiving POES satellite image
s consult the rig site.
