The MeteoJet 1204S is a black box receiver which is intended to operate inconjunction with a computer. In connection with MeteoCom 6 this packagerepresents the value of an expensive DSP-receiver. Through the use ofthe modern technique called SDR, completely new software decoder weredeveloped. WeatherFax, Navtex and RTTY can be decoded in much betterquality than by conventional SSB radios. This is achieved throughdirect IF decoding. Even noisy weather faxes can still be read veryclearly. Using this new technology greatly simplifies the userinterface. No slant correction is needed any more, for example.

Expensivefilters, displays and switches are not important factors whenconsidering onboard use. A much higher emphasis is placed on smallsize, freedom of installation and low power consumption. Decidingfactors for onboard use are functionality and cost. 

We wereable to use the full potential of this receiver and integrated it intothe software development. The control, for example, was completelyintegrated into MeteoCom 6 and is done via a USB-interface. Alsointegrated is the time management which allows for full automaticoperation. The MeteoJet 1204S unit can be installed at a concealedlocation. There is only one USB cable that connects the receiver withthe computer. The unit is USB-powered. It covers 40 kHz to 32 MHz,tuning step accuracy is 1 Hz.
With this package the costumergets a weather information system which is able to receive weatherinformation in the background, fully automatically.
