@cdevroe this is a NOAA Satellite Image received via radio at my home.

@cdevroe you're seeing the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa.

@paulopinto So you’re picking up that image via radio directly from the satellite itself? Or is it routed through some NOAA network of some sort?

@cdevroe directly from the satellite, using a RTL-SDR dongle and a discone antenna.
