I'm sure you can get a complete unit with a radio and FAX decoder but these are likely to be professional/commercial units and very expensive.

The simplest way to get into receiving satellite FAX transmissions is with a Yagi antenna, a scanner radio, and a FAX decoder like this one:

The older satellites run VHF so most low cost scanner radios will receive their signals.

Here is a source of a lot of additional information:

Note that the 1.6GHz receiver needed to receive the GOES satellite would be quite a bit more expensive.  Many high-end scanners will handle this though.
