This is a faster method for decoding the Meteor satellites than the old way I’ve been using previously.
Ensure you have SDR sharp installed and setup on Windows 7 or later.
Download the plugin
http://rtl-sdr.ru/uploads/download/meteor.zip which is from here: http://rtl-sdr.ru/page/komplekt-plaginov-dlja-priema-ka-meteor-i-drugih (might want to google translate the page – click the a-z in your address bar if using chrome).
Extract archive and edit Plugins.xml
Then copy the contents of the zip archive to your SDR# directory and edit your SDR# Plugins.xml file and add the ‘magic line’ that should be included in a txt file in the zip archive. Mine looked like:
<add key="Meteor" value="SDRSharp.Meteor.MeteorPlugin,SDRSharp.Meteor" />
Now when you open SDR# you will see a new panel on the left – you can now click demodulate and then write to start recording your meteor satellite file.
This method is a lot faster than the slower way previously posted. I’d be interested in seeing other people’s images if anyone would like to share theirs?
