On MTP/Met7, how many segments maximum are not disseminated
because of eclipses?

Looks like the power budget on MSG-1 is really small, as David was
pointing out a few days ago.

I don't know, Luca, if the outage was actually due to the eclipse -
I guess we will find out. The notice on Meteosat 7 says:

"The MET-7 Autumn eclipse season began on 31/08/03. Slots 47, 48, 1
and 2 may not be available."

In time, that's 2330 2400 0030 and 0100 (and I can't remember if
that's ending time or starting time right now).

Cheers,
David
