Getting nice ones after messing with the antenna, building a new one that will be a bit more weather proof as the one I'm using now is just tie wrapped to the top of the PVC pipe.

I also got the photo editing software running so I can crop out the junk, looks a whole lot better.

^^ The composite could probably be improved with a few tweaks to the recording settings - the brightness needs to be altered so its uniform across the images for starters.

You need to record them around the same time of day, +- an hour or two, then the Sun angles are about the same.

It would be a nice view if you could find a way to get rid of those pesky pager transmitters........Hummmmm.....The old pin in the coax???

Getting some great downloads with the new MK-10 antenna, but been having some interference from somewhere, will have to look around for what it is.

Here is the latest from NOAA-19 on 5-23-2018 at 16:39 PDT

Ive replaced the home made antenna with a proper turnstile & the difference in the image quality is incredible - virtually no pager interference now. Worth every penny. It does seem to be marginally less sensitive in the far north and south part of the passes, but I can live with that for the overall improvement.
