We have dish-TVs installed in huge numbers in India (both rural and urban areas). We all experience that if the
weather gets bad the signals get disturbed. It indicates that the signals are the best indicator of live cloud
conditions. BhuGoal (A patented device for precise weather monitoring) uses the same TV distortion for our precise
prediction of rain at a defined location. BhuGoal predicts the rain exactly 2 hours before it is expected with far more
accuracy than the billion-dollar satellite. The TV signals use Ku (nearby 10 GHz) band to communicate the channels.
While it is established scientifically that the rain impact TV signals as the cloud formation happens before the rain.
While the signal distortion is a function of weather conditions, the distortion behavior depends on the channel we
are watching. Hence, a network of BhuGoal nodes is established to create multispectral data. Also, the nodes
installed in different positions provide additional spatial information regarding the current position of clouds and
hence it improves the prediction further.
