Hello everyone. I am interested in receiving the emwin broadcasts from the goes satellites but would like to avoid the big price tag associated with pre-canned setups. Does anyone know an existing schematic to roll your own? Thanks in advance!

Maybe you should describe the downlink.  What band?  what format is the data?

NOAA has some good info on this link.

You might also check around and see if anyone is rebroadcasting on VHF in your area.  The NWS recently authorized rebroadcasting on about 5 of their VHF frequencies.  The OEM of the county south of me (Will County Illinois) reboadcasts on 163.325 Mhz.  Much more convenient than an satellite downlink.  

Regards,
Dan
