SatBlaster Lite - 2nd National Prize
The program's function is to convert the output of a VHF weather satellite receiver to a displayable picture, using only a Soundblaster soundcard. The program has been successfully used to display visible and infra-red cloud cover pictures transmitted by the American TlROS-N series polar-orbiting satellites using the APT (automatic picture telemetry) format. The Russian satellites are not supported as yet.
