If your interested in capturing live pictures from Polar Orbiting Satellites it's easy with this exellent program from Germany. All you need is an antenna (a piece of wire will do), a receiver or scanner, a sound card and a copy of Wxsat For Windows.

This program also works very well on shortwave Wefax reception.

If you want to give it a try, and can't figure it out, then e-mail me at the address below and I'll be glad to offer any assistance I can.
