Weather fax reception

Postby seakayak » Sat Jan 28, 2017 3:32 pm

Can someone tell me how to receive Weather faxes with the RSP1? I know how to tune in the frequency but how do I convert it to the Wx fax?
I'm new to SDR and still learning. Don't know much other than just receiving what I see.

tnx in advance

Hi Kurd,

Wat wil je ontvangen hf of vhf??

Op +- 137Mhz zijn de sats direct te ontvangen bij "doorgang" of wil je de wxfaxen op kg?

You can use "soundflower" or "loopback" on OS X
