This is an APT satellite weather image decoder for Linux.
It can decode APT images direct from the receivers audio
o/p via the computers soundcard or from a file of
recorded APT signal samples.
Currently wxapt supports the NOAA-type and Meteor-type
APT formats. wxapt automatically sets up the sound
card and the mixers recording/capture volume to the
correct level and then determines the type of satellite
form the signature of its sync pulse train.
wxapt is a simple non-interactive command line tool for
the console and was designed to be efficient and suitable
for running on low power machines using simpler processors
like the Intel StrongArm and similar.
For this reason wxapt uses only integer arithmetic for
all processing and does not require linking to math
libraries for calculations.
There is also a GTK+-based user interface available which
is called xwxapt.
