NOAA Weather Satellites and SDR

One site I have in my Google Reader list and check regularly is the Hackaday blog

One project they recently featured was Grab your own images from NOAA weather satellites

The main project website describes using a Softrock homebrew SDR(software defined radio) to get the necessary audio file to import into WxImg decoder.

I have been toying with getting hold of the AmSat-UK FunCube SDR dongle, which is now available from Martin Lynch and Sons and using it in a similar way after seeing this article a while back.
