#WEFAXWednesday

As you all should know by now, I have a,  *AHEM*, thing for weather faxes. I decided to celebrate this little obsession of mine by creating Weather Fax Wednesday, also known as #WEFAXWednesday on Twitter. If you decode a cool looking weather fax, post it to Twitter using this tag so others can check it out. While it would help if you post them on a Wednesday, I’m sure no one will mind if you post them on another day of the week.

Here’s a few I posted to the @hfradio1 Twitter feed today. All decodes were done using fldigi and a Microtelecom Perseus.

An IR sat photo from Chile, and probably the best decode I’ve ever gotten from there. 

Happy #WEFAXWednesday everyone!
