Ulrich,

true, but that page is also outdated because of the Power Amp problem
on MSG-1.

Good to know that what started as a personal thought will in the end
be Eumetsat's policy, with MET7 kept at 0 and MET8 close to 0 with
images rectified at 0, as mentioned by Douglas.

Bye, Luca

At that new position images corrected to 0° (as they are now) will show less
interpolation than at present. Seems a good compromise.

Is it just me, or did everyone miss some complete HRIT scans on
those two days:

Aug 25
Scan: 1500 2100

Aug 26
Scan: 0300 0900 1500

Seems to be something awfully systematic in those numbers! By the
way you can get a report by selecting Tools, Missing segments report
with the MSG Data Manager.

David,

Sorry can't help with Aug 25, or 03.00 Aug 26th.
09.00 agreed and 15.00 (and others around that time) also agreed and
referred to in the 'News' message albeit somebody dated it 16/08/03 instead
of 26/08/03 !

Hope that helps a little.

Douglas.

Hi,

I was just wondering, since the direct downlink of the data from MSG-
1 will not be possible, what would prevent Eumetsat from positioning
MSG-1 close by 0 degrees, let's say 0.5E, and run the operational
service from that position?

Doing that would enable a longer transition from the analog MET7
broadcasts, which are received by a very large number of stations,
keeping MET7 at 0 degrees, while MET8 would already be operational
with almost the same coverage.

Of course I am only talking about technical matters, not taking into
consideration agreements for orbital slots and things like this.

Does anyone know how the transition from analog WEFAX to the new
format is handled? I would not be surprised to see quite a few
protests when MET7 will start to drift towards 10W...

Bye, Luca
Hello Luca

Meteosat 7 is not going to be moved. It will remain at 0� until at least
the end of 2005. MSG-1 will be moved to approx 3-4�W, subject to final
Eumetsat Council approval. This is possible because there will be no
direct dissemination from MSG-1. and hence no co-interference.
At that new position images corrected to 0� (as they are now) will show less
interpolation than at present. Seems a good compromise.

Regards
Douglas.

Subject: [MSG-1] Eclipse periods


Will MSG-1 have eclipse periods like other geostationary satellites,
when there is not enough power to keep the electronics fully
running? I am presuming so, but have seen no announcement as yet.
I also asusme that at some point there will be periods where the
imager will be switched off to avoid looking at the sun.

I see this will start soon on GOES and Meteosat 7.

Cheers,
David
Interesting point, David. There is nothing specific in any of the technical
documents (Particularly 07 and 08). MSG's power demand (600W) is 3 times
that of its predecessors but still has an increased life span of 7 years.
There is a reference to on-board batteries for eclipse purposes but I would
think that it is to ensure power for its own housekeeping etc. Having said
that there is no input/output dissemination now so the power requirements
must be less.
Will be interesting to see what happens.

Douglas.

Given the ability of the HRV scanner to look at two different
windows during its scan - with separate east-west starting points
for the upper and lower segments - how would you like to see the
scan managed?

- tracking the sun
- fixed on zero degrees longitude
- fixed on Europe and Africa
- any other ideas?

David
I certainly think Europe is priority No.1. Low sun (early and late) is
excellent for cloud topography etc. so a 6 hour bit in the middle of the day
really is not good enough. One difficulty is the judgement of how the
northern hemisphere will look (in visible) during the winter months although
the appearance of the southern hemisphere over our summer has given some
clues.
Permanent Europe with the lower segment following the sun ? That would
ensure visible images for tropical cyclones in the Madagascar area and of
course the formation of tropical depressions/storms/hurricanes in the
Atlantic.

Re: New group - and some questions

Luca Bertagnolio <lucaberta@...>
 

Lawrence,

I would try to see if a 1.8m dish would be enough to receive MSG-1 in C-band from Atlantic Bird, if I were you. Just pure curiosity, as I think that the data is an exact bit dump of the HotBird data.

Actually, I am quite convinced that the Fucino uplink station in Italy receives HotBird, dissects the DVB data and then feeds it up to Atlantic Bird, as simple as that. No need to get into the weeds of the DVB payload, just copy bits!

Bye, Luca
