I'm looking for a good place to catch weather satellite data near Allen, but out of the suburbs. I've thought about the McKinney Airport, but I'm worried about RF interference. Some country road where I can pull off to the side in a car with the horizon viewable in all directions would be preferable. North and South must be clear. It would be really easy if I had a truck to go offroading, but unfortunately, this isn't a possibility.

IF you can find a large open field near North Dallas PLEASE let me know. ALL of them I knew about are now being built on. Apartment building galore.

Try Google maps. It should show the open fields and you could go from there.

I get great results every time I go to this place in Princeton (33.067339 -96.498172). My brother recently moved to Blue Ridge (TX). I think I'm going to try to sweet talk him into letting me put up a permanent installation. They really need to emphasize the importance of being in a large flat field when capturing APT satellites. I don't think this is something you can do well in the suburbs.
