An Exceptional Weather Map


Norwegian Meteorological Institute


A Good Afternoon for Weather Data 

I felt exceptionally lucky today to have received a really outstanding weather map from the Far North.  The Ice-Service of the Norwegian Meteorological Institute distributes its cartographic data via the German Weather Service on 7880kHz. I currently have a JRC NRD-345 here, and I thought, "let's see how it does on RRTY and Weather Facsimile (WEFAX)."

As you can see, it did very well, indeed. I was well impressed with this reception result, which arrived here at around 15:47 on Wednesday, 9th February 2022. The equipment I used was:

- Wellbrook ALA1530 Loop

- JRC NRD-345 HF Receiver

- 7878.1kHz USB, Wide Filter

- U-PHORIA UMC202HD Soundcard

- Zorns Lemma 11.42 Software 

It was an exceptionally clear afternoon today, after a damp and cloudy start, so I am remaining at my editor's desk for a while longer today, hoping that this result can be repeated.

Are you receiving any good European or UK weather data, maps or images? Why not share them with us at RadioUser, by e-mailing them to me at:
