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.

Composite image from yesterday. This is made using the composite imaging capabilities of wxtoimg. Noaas 15 & 19 only - Ive taken 18 out my tracking for a few days until it clears the Meteor 2 co channel interference again

^^ 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.

I have not been getting clean scans lately.
Houses in the way.I only get clean ones at the low east passes.
This one is nice.

It looks like another nice day in my neck of the woods.
Not for every one though.
