Re: HRIT and LRIT Low-Cost System

Jaapyse, If you are located in Africa, a 1m grid parabolic antenna such as the ANT-GRID-24DBI may work for Meteosat 11 signal reception. If you are in Europe (particularly Northern European locations), you will likely need a larger parabolic antenna. If there are others in your area receiving the Me...

Re: HRIT and LRIT Low-Cost System

The advantage to extending the signal the distance from the antenna to the PC using a USB2.0 extender cable and locating the SDR at the antenna is that it can usually be done at a comparatively low cost and there is less signal loss before the RF signal to digital conversion and with the right USB 2...
