Receiving Weather RTTY and FAX with the RTL-SDR

March 21, 2014 admin

YouTube user Tiago Sousa shows how he was able to receive weather Radioteletype (RTTY) data using the RTL-SDR, an upconverter and MultiPSK. Weather RTTY is broadcast by weather services such as the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) which is broadcast from Hamburg, Germany. It is intended for people at sea.

Tiago used an RTL-SDR with upconverter and an 11 meter long wire antenna. For the software he used SDR# and piped the audio to MultiPSK.

Tiago has also uploaded a second video showing him receiving Weatherfax with the same setup. Weatherfax is a signal that transmits a fax image showing weather patterns.
