wxtoimg makes decoded image look bad

Post by weathersatelite » Tue Jan 14, 2020 4:49 am

several questions
see pic to answer

could wxtoimgt be making it not look good due to an error it gives IF TO LOW or something?
also, why does wxtoimg not showing any state/country borders.

I don't have an answer, but can verify your results. I don't have my rtl-sdr yet, it should be here in a few days.

I built a double cross antenna and tested it with a scanner (which has too narrow of a bandwidth), recording the sound with my phone. Also, the batteries were low on my scanner, so the sound blinked off every few seconds.

Despite all of these hurdles, the NOAA-apt program actually gave a good picture in some sections of the pass.

I was happy with the antenna and will put it on my roof as soon as the weather cooperates.

I hope you get an answer and will be watching for one

There is an option under "Options" to enable or disable the map overlay, but do not know what is needed for it to work. It didn't work for me. Wxtoing could not get the telemetry data

is there a way to stop it from over brightening pictures after you click decode after a live recording.
