USBR Hydromet Antenna Farm, Boise Idaho

This antenna farm receives data messages relayed from the remote sites by the GOES satellites. One antenna receives messages retransmitted by NASA via the DOMSAT satellite system. A small antenna is used for collecting atomic clock time signals for accurate synchronization of computer system clocks that process the Hydromet data. Multiple antennas, multiple satellites, multiple frequencies all help improve the reliability of Hydromet data collection efforts.
