Satellite Status - HRPT Transmissions
HRPT (High resolution picture transmission) is broadcast sent to Earth from orbiting satellites. Here's a sample of what it looks like:
Those images have very good resolution. Here are some frequencies to use:
|CMA||Feng Yun FY-3A||Sunsynchronous||AHRPT||1704.5 MHz|
|CMA||Feng Yun FY-3B||Sunsynchronous||AHRPT||1704.5 MHz|
|CMA||Feng Yun FY-3C||Sunsynchronous||AHRPT||1701.3 MHz|
Where's the catch? As always the catch is in the antenna :) You need a very high gain antenna. For example:
I will find some time to play a bit with those broadcast. Maybe I will come up with some practical home-brew solutions on how to catch them.
