Hi Everyone

I thought to add a couple of my first attempt at capturing images from the weather satellites.
I will be adding some of the antenna in the home brew section very soon.


Cheers John  26CT4515


Brilliant John, what's it like to be clever? :P  :)
Seriously though, I'm amazed you get such good images after only a few weeks since the start of your satellite image downloads.

Amazing John. Very professional.

My first attempts were rubbish, and I never did work out how to colourise and overlay them :(

I gave up too easily, but I might come back to this one day - with a proper antenna!
