Arduino DIY Gas Sensor “Grenade” Live on Adafruit ?>

Arduino DIY Gas Sensor “Grenade” Live on Adafruit

Last week I quickly prototyped my Arduino DIY Gas sensor which monitors smoke, LPG (liquefied petroleum gas), and CO (carbon monoxide).  I used the MQ2 smoke/gas sensor and an Arduino nano with a simple ASK 433mhz transmitter to transmit the values out to any radio receiver. It was well received on the Adafruit Show and Tell event as well as Lady Ada mentioned it on the following Ask an Engineer show.  Here are the videos.  Full build video soon with…

Russian Weather Satellite with SDR ?>

Russian Weather Satellite with SDR

A while back I discovered the new Russian weather satellite Meteor-M2 and decided I simply must find a way to receive the bird with my SDR devices. Thanks to a couple posts over at http://www.rtl-sdr.com/ I was able to receive the satellite and decode the images.  Here are two of my recent images.  I’ll post up a video on this soon!

NOAA Weather Satellite Images With Cheap SDR Receiver ?>

NOAA Weather Satellite Images With Cheap SDR Receiver

This morning I decided to fire up the ultra cheap software defined radio (DVB-T dongle) so my PC could grab some weather satellite photos from the NOAA satellites. If you haven’t heard- you can now buy a $10 USB device which functions as an all band radio receiver.  Tonnes of freeware programs now exist to work with these signals.  One fun use is decoding the weather images directly from the satellites.  It is really a simple process and your PC…
