Re: Goes 16

The announcement earlier in the week that today between 15:00 and 17:00 UTC Mode 6 images were going to be sent for Goes-16 disappeared from weekly operations schedule week 7.

Still the last Mode 3 image was from 14:45 today and since then silence. Therefore I can not verify if the ABI manager copes with the other name and frequency or not.

Anyone else receiving Goes-16 M6?

Hi David,

Both GOES satellites are likely to switch to a mode-6 default scan pattern in mid-March this year. the exact date isn't clear yet.

Thanks David for your response.
I will wait until tomorrow and check what happen on E1H-TPG-1 channel.
I'm granted to receive GOES-16 ABI 1/4-hourly image data on the EO Portal.

Best regards,



Yes, that's two of us!  Although it's a short test, I get the impression
from a US posting that 10-minute data might become the norm.
