First test with the new dual band YAGI antenna today. This time, the antenna is constructed from copper rods with the expectation of better reception quality, since I am a bit disappointed with the results of the V-dipole. Today the METEOR M2, a russian weather satellite is in range. I hope its signal is different from the NOAA satellites, I desperately am looking for some variety. As it starts to appear in the spectrum I am astonished, the satellite uses digital transmission. I can barely distinguish it from the actual radio noise. The plugin for the radio software I have to use does not output the decoded signal. No surprise, I guess the radio amateur community is not really interested in the acoustic qualities of the data, and did not implement this option.
