I am currently trying to observe and obtain data from the meteorological satellites. I have constructed a V-dipole specifically for the 137 MHz and was able to observe the NOAA 15, NOAA 18, and NOAA 19. I was even able to decode some part of it to obtain images.
Recently I found out that Meteor M2 satellite is going to be in my sight today and went out to record the baseband to observe it for later. However, even though I was directing towards the azimuth angles that the satellite needs to be with their elevation angles included, I could not receive anything that might resemble the existence of the satellite. I checked whether I can listen to FM radios as well right before trying to observe the satellite. This seems to point out that it is not about the setup. Also checked that the satellite I was observing is the alive one, not the one that crashed some time ago and there are images in the internet from that satellite approximately one week ago.
Now, I am really curious on why I could not receive even a single part of the signal. Is there anyone with an idea on the topic?
