Thanks David. I usually check that but forgot that NOAA 20 is now operational and appearing there, but still under test for Eumetcast.

NOAA 20 seems to have been under test for ages. Not sure why Eumetsat are taking so long to have the data available to all !!!

Yes the VIIRS M and DNB data testing started on 16th April this year from Athens, Kangerlussuaq, Lannion, Maspalomas and Svalbard stations. so a very long test period considering the satellite is operational.
I wonder if Eumetsat are just waiting until the data is transferred to TP1 HVS-1 from TP2 but that is not until 22nd August (or perhaps until all the EARS stations are up and running).
