Raspberry Pi NOAA Satellite Receiver element14 Presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos   If you want to build an antenna to receive signals from a weather satellite, you will need a special kind of circular polarized antenna known as a quadrifilar helix antenna. In this video, we'll go through the theory and practice behind how to build a QFH antenna. These antennas are especially-made for NOAA weather satellite reception and are tuned to 137MHz to re ...
Raspberry Pi NOAA Satellite Receiver element14 Presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos   For Project TIROS, I'm building a briefcase-style NOAA satellite receiver using upcycled parts centered around a Raspberry Pi. In this video, I will walk you through the process of installing the necessary software components to use the RTL-SDR module on a Raspberry Pi for NOAA satellite reception.     Don't forget to subscribe for more! http://bit.ly ...
Raspberry Pi NOAA Satellite Receiver element14 Presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos   The Duratool TC-110 tool case from Newark element14 is a great, inexpensive, heavy-duty case for transporting small hand tools and test equipment. It's made of a lightweight MDF shell coated in textured, heavy-duty ABS plastic and accented with brushed aluminum on the corners to provide extra protection against bumps and dings. Inside, there is a large cushion of ...
Most Useless IoT Device Ever - Part 2 element14 Presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos   Clem mayermakes challenged me to add more useless "functionality" to the "Most Useless IoT Device Ever", but the IoT Rock had to get from Austria to California first. These are my initial reactions to the Cold War-themed care package my European colleague sent me!   Thanks again, Clem!   Who gets the Rock next? What other useless "functionality" could ...
