There are a lot of satellites above our heads. Did You know, that using only Your computer, TV Tuner and simple DIY antena You could recieve the transmissions from them ? For example real time pictures of earth. I'll show You how.

You will need:

- 2 wires (could be from ordinary electrical cable)

- some plywood or wood for an antena

- coaxial cable (TV cable)

- computer (Windows/Mac/Linux)

I made a video about this project. It contains the whole instructions on how to recieve the signal from NOAA satellites.
