Welcome to Remote Imaging in West Sussex.
This website is dedicated to displaying images from weather satellites.
Site is hosted by Webfusion and maintained by Mike Jupp.
It will contain links to images that I have received via EUMETCast and NOAA CLASS.
Thanks to EUMETSAT for their fantastic help to the amateur community and too NOAA for the free access to the data.
Setup for EUMETCast is a two PC system, one for reception/decoding and one for data processing, the receive PC being fed from an 85cms dish/LNB aligned on the EUROBIRD 9 satellite.
The receiving PC is a AMD Sempron 3000, with 1Gb of RAM and a 120Gb HDD.
It runs WIN2K Pro, T-Systems Tellicast software, is fitted with a Skystar DVB card, the EUMETSAT USB dongle, a network card and a Ramdisk of 83Mb is installed to help the flow of data.
The data processing PC is an AMD Sempron 2500 with 1Gb of RAM an 80Gb HDD, networked to the receive PC. It runs WIN2K Pro and David Taylor's MSG Data Manager, AVHRR Manager and METOP Manager, all run 24/7. It is also used for image manipulation
with David's HRPTReader and Paintshop Pro 7. All saved images and data are stored on a Seagate external USB HDD.
Most images produced with this system are quite large and may take a while to load.
Weather Station is now back online with a new Davis Vantage Pro Plus and a Boltek Lightning tracker.
It is now set to refresh the website data every 15 minutes and will be online 24/7.
Please do not rely on the weather information for scientific purposes,
although it should give a fair indication of the weather here in Steyning.
The station has all the usual sensors including sunshine and UV capability.
