Receiving Equipment

- Homebrew quadrifilar helix antenna.
- 30 m long coax feed line (approx. 3.5 dB losses at 150 MHz)
- Homebrew 20 dB Gain 137 MHz to HF down-converter
- Perseus receiver  with 35 kHz IF bandwidth and PLL FM demodulator with AFC (software version not yet released)
- WxToImg processing software

Notes:
The total receiver noise figure is about 5 dB (mainly dominated by the losses of the antenna feed line).
The antenna equivalent noise temperature measured at the receiving location is approx. 1200 K (at 137 MHz).
