From October 10th 2016 Milbank PWS went live publishing its own live weather satellite images. These images are received direct from NOAA 15, 18 and 19 polar orbiting satellites using the RTL RS208T2 chipset Dongle receiver linked to SDRSharp software connected to a homemade QFH (Quadrifilar Helix) antenna and decoded using the WXtoimg Programme running on a Windows10 PC.
