A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

You should be able to see the snow planned for this bank holiday in the next day or so.

I am getting some poor scans lately.I have two options Knock a few houses down.Not really an option I need to win the lottery first to buy them.Two shove the Quadrifiler up a bit more.I have got hold of three meters of 40 mil pipe Shoved some eight foot canes down it to stop it wobbling too much.It is fastened down now to straighten it a bit.That will give me two more meters in height..
The clip is a scan from yesterday.Start of the scan a mess what am I getting on the SDR
Not all are like this.
Edit Apologies this is probably in the wrong thread It sould be in My go at WXSAT

Noaa 18 is in its regular dance with Meteor M2. I always turn N18 off when its dancing with the Russian bird & just leave the other 2 running.

This will help you visualise it. This evenings Noaa18 / Meteor pass at about 1900uk. Wxtrack by David Taylor. The free version is fine for what we need. Sadly both satellites are almost on the same frequency

This is the best one that I have had from the west for some time.I think that the ash trees to my west are blocking some west passes.Although this pass is west When I get round to it
I will post the problem in My go at wxsats.

A nice clean scan this one .I do not get many these days.I normally get interference at the start and end of the scan.I may bite the bullet and alter Elevation degrees settings.The yellow location cross was dificult to see sometimes,I changed it to Black for better visibility.White may also work better.
