Subject: [MSG-1] Decontamination?

According to Messages-regular reports:

13/01/04 09:00 End of decontamination nominal SEVIRI images resume.

I rest my case. But I'm still willing to be convinced that I am not

Yes that is the end of the entire decontamination process including the
recalibration period etc but if you look at the whole message :-

Activities planned for week 02:
There will be an MSG-1 decontamination starting on the 06/01/04. This
procedure will have the following impact on SEVIRI imaging.
06/01/04 from 08:30 until 11:15 there will be no SEVIRI data available.
06/01/04 from 11:15 until 09/01/04 12:00 only VIS channels will available
with degraded quality.
09/01/04 from 12:00 until 09/01/04 13:15 no SEVIRI data available.
09/01/04 from 13:15 until 13/01/04 09:00 SEVIRI images available with
degraded quality
13/01/04 09:00 Nominal SEVIRI images resume

The third last line indicates that from 13.15, 09.01.04 SEVIRI images
available with degraded quality. Two lines before that makes it clear that
from 06/01/04 (11.15) until 09/01/04 (12.00) only VIS available, and the 75
mins gap between the two, all off, in preparation for start of all data.
