Tonight I dug around the Internet further on pieces I would need to create an EMWIN satellite receive setup. So far I found a few alternative dishes on Amazon. They are the same as the TP-Link dish I presented before. They are 2.4 GHz WiFi Grid Dishes measuring around 24 to 25 dBi.
The next things I started to research tonight is purchasing the correct SDR adapter, such as SDRPlay from Ham Radio Outlet, and a Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) from Amazon. The LNAs are about $10, but require some additional power components while the SDRPlay starts in around $99.
The next list items include coax and connectors. I have to take the N-based connectors and convert them to the appropriate coax for the SDR adapters I have. Most SDR adapters use a SMA type connector as their input. The Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) also uses SMA type connectors between the dish and coax if it is necessary to use.
The next things I am calculating into the list is possible tax and shipping costs. Right now I am on a tight budget until hopefully I hear back from one of the jobs I applied for, but hopefully everything works out.
The next list items, unrelated to shopping, would be how to integrate it into my current weather setup. I would like to create a new weather desk with all the components including a forecasting PC that anyone can use while I am away from the computer. My goal would be to receive the data, place it on a shared disk storage unit, and allow users limited guest access to the data and software.
