Some very bad pictures of neowise from about an hour ago, plenty of room for improvement in terms of camera, a 14 year old K100D with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens.

Did you know that Satoru Iwata (the legendary CEO of Nintendo) was an unpaid intern at Commodore Japan in Akihabara and wrote a videogame for the VIC20?

@sir The great CloudWall must be feeling very sensitive today, every request (so far) to a website with it gives me a captcha. Funny read after the captcha though.

@paulopinto It's just a standard RTLSDR so it's supported. Need to buy a proper F-type to SMA adapter first though.

@paulopinto For reception its a QFH (@ 3m elevation) + 20m of rg6 + a NooElec NESDR SMArt. Seems to get pretty good images.

@paulopinto I see I am not alone in weather satellite direct dissemination here anymore.

I still need to automate my reception, although I feel like that will take some of the fun out of it.

I've just realised that I haven't posted any of my HRPT progress on here.
So, I bought a LimeSDR Mini (great SDR, rather insensitive though). It works great for NOAA, MetOP and FengYun, however it has a nasty spur at 1.7ghz which messes with Meteor. Currently I only do NOAA because the demodulators and decoders are not polished well enough for MetOp and FengYun.

#DOFH excuse #95:

Serverless infrastructure provider ran out of servers.

@sjanes As far as I know it was intended to use the MetOp protocol, but was changed last minute. I have a document detailing the protocol and a hint from @MetroOleg@twitter.com which helped a lot but doesn't cover how the streams should be interleaved.
