USA-Satcom has just released v2.1.0.0 of the XRIT Decoder. Along with enhancements for the XRIT Decoder, a new RSP Streamer X has been released and is operable with the RSP1A, RSP2, and RSPduo - new features include operation with two streams simultaneously (provided that the PC being used has sufficient processing power and an RSPduo or more than one compatible RSP are being used). Also new is the XRIT File manager which allows for improved operation with both LRIT and HRIT files, improved LUT for excellent false color images, user-selectable automated black filling of the white background on full disk visual and false color HRIT images, and country as well as state map overlays.

The new color enhancements are excellent:

Now that GOES 17 is transmitting images, you can get an even better view. (Note: GOES 17 is not yet in full service at this time.) The HRIT images from both GOES 16 and GOES 17 provide a nice view of the Earth via the SDRplay RSP2 (or RSP1A or RSPduo), NOAA GOES Satellites, NooElec SAWbird GOES LNA (5v 30mA version), and USA-Satcom XRIT software. Very nice Earth images.

The new country and state boundary feature of the USA-Satcom GOES XRIT File Manager allows determining where weather phenomena are occurring by state more easily.

USA-Satcom has continued improvement efforts on RSP Streamer X, the XRIT Demodulator, XRIT Ingestor, and now added an XRIT File Manager. New features include mapping overlays, improved file management, and improved automated false color capabilities. The software is operable with GOES 15, GOES 16, and GOES 17 satellites in the United States. Contact USA-Satcom for operability with other satellites. GOES 17 is not officially in full service yet.
