SondeHub Radiosonde Telemetry

climate environmental GPS weather


SondeHub Radiosonde telemetry contains global radiosonde (weather balloon) data captured by SondeHub from our participating radiosonde_auto_rx receiving stations. radiosonde_auto_rx is a open source project aimed at receiving and decoding telemetry from airborne radiosondes using software-defined-radio techniques, enabling study of the telemetry and sometimes recovery of the radiosonde itself. Currently 313 receiver stations are providing data for an average of 384 radiosondes a day. The data within this repository contains received telemetry frames, including radiosonde type, gps position, and for some radiosondes atmospheric sensor data (temperature, humidity, pressure). As the downlinked telemetry does not always contain calibration information, any atmospheric sensor data should be considered to be uncalibrated. Note that radiosonde_auto_rx does not have sensor data support for all radiosonde types.
