GPS / NOAA Weather Radio RSSI Logger

by AIW on Fri Jan 04, 2013 9:48 am

Here's some pictures of my latest project that couples an Adafruit Ultimate GPS module with my own NOAA Weather Radio/SAME Decoder module. This setup allows me to log signal strength of the radio reception based on GPS position. Right now I don't have an SD Card implemented. It feeds the lat, lon, and RSSI of the radio to a terminal program for capture. After that I can overlay it on a map using gpsvisualizer.com

I did have some issues at first because the I needed to convert the NMEA messages to decimal degrees in order to get the map to display the position correctly. Thankfully, I found some other code here on the forum to help me work around that. I did a drive around my complex yesterday and it worked great. I could even see myself pulling out of my parking spot and pulling back in. Great GPS module!!
