NO MORE 137 MHZ LRPT from N2-2 :-(

I just learned, that no more Hi-Resolution pictures are sent from the Russian weather satellite METEOR-M N2-2 using 137MHz frequency as it was struck by a micro-meteorite on Dec 18 2019, causing it to lose control and go offline.

This information is sad as I was so hoping to continue with my experiments with the LRPT decoding later this year when sun light is back with us in the north hemisphere – during winter time Meteor pictures are nothing more than black frames.

There is still the older Meteor-M N2 but the pictures sent by the N2-2 were so much better.

Well, things like this happens when you are in space 🙂
