NOAA 19 is transmitting on 137.9125 MHz. WXtoImg 2.9.4 supports NOAA-19 now. NOAA-19 (vegetation) over Japan, 03:47-04:02UTC, 11 Feb 2009 NOAA-19 (MCIR) 137.9125MHz, Elv 58, 17:14-17:19UTC, 03 Jun 2009 NOAA-19 is now operating normal mode with sensors 2 & 4 on 137.100MHz. NOAA-18, 137.9125 MHz NOAA-19, 137.1000 MHz http://www.wxtoimg.com/support/ NOAA 18 / NOAA 19 Frequency Change NOAA 18 and NOAA 19 changed frequencies on 23 June 2009, with NOAA 18 now on 137.9125 and NOAA 19 on 137.10. If your copy of WXtoImg hasn't picked up this change, see the Support section for more information on how to ensure you pick up these changes automatically. NOAA 18/19: Getting Frequency Changes Start WXtoImg; in Options -> Active APT satellites -> check box "Update this table when...", and click OK button, then select: File -> Update Keplers; and finally select: Options -> Save Options. Getting NOAA 19 Kepler Updates Start WXtoImg; in Options -> Internet Options -> Select "Celestrak", and click OK button, then select: File -> Update Keplers; and finally select: Options -> Save Options. NOAA 15 / NOAA 17 Frequencies Changed NOAA-15, 137.620 MHz NOAA-17, 137.500 MHz NOAA 15 and NOAA 17 swapped frequencies on 12 October 2010, with NOAA 15 now on 137.620 and NOAA 17 on 137.500. If you haven't picked up the changes, you should check Options -> Active APT Satellites, and ensure Update this table when updating Keplers is selected. File -> Update Keplers will pickup the new frequency changes. Options -> Save Options will ensure the frequency changes are saved for the next time you start WXtoImg.
