Update: With the current hurricane the University of Puerto Rico appears to be offline. Sorry for the inconvenience.
About a year ago I wrote a .NET based way to connect to NOAAPORT data being streamed over the Internet from the iNOAAPORT project. At the time I wrote this, back in August to September 2016, there was only one way to connect to the system. You could only use Linux based software.
In case you don’t know NOAAPORT is a system run by the National Weather Service to distribute virtually every weather product from their organization via satellite feeds. In order to setup a satellite receive station you sometimes need large equipment including a 12 foot dish which is not feasible in certain areas. For more information about NOAAPORT click here.
By working with the source code and a professor at the University of Puerto Rico (UPR) I created a .NET version on my iPad using an IDE from the App Store based on Xamarin. I created a GIST of the source code (View the GitHub GIST).
Last night I have finalized the code, added some comments, and created a version for the .NET Core which will ensure it works cross platform. You can view the GitHub Repository by clicking here.
This is very basic code, but will get you online and receiving text based data in seconds. My next steps is to work on parsing the data, creating image files, and separating the data by product type.
