I use a Hamtronics R139 Weather fax Receiver with a QFH antenna that I built for receving and decoding images from the weather birds such as NOAA 18. I never had any luck with any of my other receivers such as my Icom R20, being to narrow for this purpose, although I know of guy's who have modified receivers successfully for just this purpose. My set up may be seen on my website: www.stormchaser.cjb.net click on: Quadrifilar Helix Antenna. The page needs to be upgraded, as I use a newer laptop than the one shown.
