Automatic Radiosonde Receiver Utilities

Please refer to the auto_rx wiki for the latest information.

This project is built around rs1279's RS demodulators, and provides a set of utilities ('auto_rx') to allow automatic reception and uploading of Radiosonde positions to multiple services, including:

Auto-RX's Web Interface provides a way of seeing the live status of your station, and also a means of reviewing and analysing previous radiosonde flights. Collected meteorological data can be plotted in the common 'Skew-T' format.

Support for other radiosondes may be added as required - please send us sondes to test with! If you have any information about telemetry formats, we'd love to hear from you (see our contact details below).

Improvements from the upstream RS codebase will be merged into this codebase when/where appropriate. A big thanks to rs1729 for continuing to develop and improve these decoders, and working with us to make auto_rx decode all the radiosondes!


This software is under regular development. Please update regularly to get bug-fixes and improvements!
