Re: Waiting for Segments in AVHRR

Andy Clarke

Hi David,

Yes, really looking forward to grabbing some of the higher def images using AVHRR. I think I've finally worked out my latest mistake and why I can't see any data capture in AVHRR. When I requested the products on the EOPortal I naively selected GDS-Metop-A, GDS-Metop-B, GDS-Metop-C and GDS-NOAA - all AVHRR level 1. I think I probably should have selected RDS-EARS with EARS-AVHRR. Is this correct?

I probably need to optimise the channels I am saving at some point in the ini files along with the correctly requested products on the on EUMETSAT.

I basically just want GEOS16 & 17 and process in goesAbiManager, NOAA19 and Metop A-C using AVHRR and the images in MSG HRIT in MSG Data Manager. My primary focus though is looking at NOAA19.



Kind Regards

Hi Gerard,

No not yet, I am OK with GOES 16 & 17 and I think what is SEVIRI but just wanted to decode some NOAA19 pictures. I can do this direct from NOAA19 when it goes overhead using my FT-818 and WXToIMG on 137.100Mhz but I think the image quality would be better grabbing them from EUMETSAT.



As you know, but for the benefit of others, the best choice for NOAA-19 real-time images is the EARS stream, which actually includes NOAA-19, Metop-A, Metop-B and Metop-C, and these are all 5-channel, 1 km resolution data from the NOAA AVHRR scanner. This is ten times the resolution of the APT 137 MHz data.

Any problems, just ask.
