Re: How do you guys use LRIT function on MSG data manager?

David J Taylor
 

Hi Thorsten,

MSG-4 did the trick.. i wondered why the Check button in file controls section couldnt find my files. it was so clear that all of them are msg4 files and under advanced section msg3 was selected. silly me ..

Do you guys know what this error means? as soon as MSG Data Manager starts to decode its crashes... i tested both on W10 and on my W7
i unchecked the channels one by one but it didnt help. i googled it and also checked FAQs at satsignal.eu for help
========================================

The MSG Data Manager should be protected against most errors - from hard experience in fixing them when others discovered them! I suggest starting with the Logs tab visible. I would also check that the files have been brought down in binary mode, and not ASCII. Please show a screen-shot of Help, About.

Cheers,
David

Hi Angel,

Maybe you have not selected binary transfer when downloading the files?
When you download the files with ASCII transfer they are corrupted.

Cheers,
Thorsten

Hi  David J Taylor and Thorsten Miglus ,

Thank you guys for your answers. Msg-4 solved the problem, now as i wrote in my earlier mail MSG data manger sees my files, but when i do start the decoding process at the bottom of the window it is starts to count and shows me some errors, and as soon as it starts to decode, crashes.. 

Re: How do you guys use LRIT function on MSG data manager?

angel sevov
 

Yes it was binary/ASCI thing caused the problem. ive tested everything but the Binary/ASCI.
Problem was that FileZilla downloaded all files as ASCI (in AUTO-mode).

Im really grateful for your help Thorsten and you David for your tools. 

i have big passion for satellites, SDR and telecommunication technologies. Eumetcast was always a dream and it was not free as you guys already know. 
As a DXer i am so happy that Eumetcast have changed their policy and giving the tools, licenses and EKUs free of charge for private-use. it has never been so easy to getting started

Data Loss

Ian Deans
 

This morning at about 11.25 - 11.30 UTC I saw substantial losses on both the basic and HVS-1 service ( not taking HVS-2) as did Douglas.

However on David's Tellicast packet loss page some are showing no losses at all including David. I find this rather strange.

I see a recent mail advising that GOES 17 has been on mode 6 testing since yesterday until tomorrow, although there are presently problems with both GOES 16 and 17 data.

Regards
Ian.

=================================

Only to be expected, Ian, as reduction of signal during the solar outage can confuse the device about which of the two modes it should be in. I have a BS-only receiver, so a higher link margin, and so far no losses reported.

Thanks David. Completely forgot about the solar outage, so will move to 2 receivers for a few days to protect basic service.

Re: Data Loss

David, Ian and All,

I am in the middle - maximum co-linearity - today and tomorrow of 0.20 and 0.18 degrees co-lin during this outage period.
My TP 1 SNR went from a steady 13.4 dB down to 6.9 dB at maximum co-linearity.
Negative link margin levels for 16 APSK of course but still positive for BS though one missed segment on the 11:15 cycle CH 12 'full' image

Regards,
John.

Re: Roll-out of new EUMETCast Client Software (Tellicast), EKU hardware and drivers from 22 Feb

Ernst Lobsiger
 

Dear  GNU/Linux users

I have installed my first GNU/Linux amd64 only EUMETCast receiver using the new 64Bit client and 64Bit EKU software.
It works with an old EKU for T1+T2. I faced two problems that are described in the README attached. Happy hacking.

Cheers,
Ernst

I have a test installation running on the BS and HVS-2 on a test PC, and it
seems to be OK. Time will tell. For those updating from 2.14.4 there may
be a quick method (which is what I'm testing).

The Meteosat Rapid Scanning Service (RSS) moves to MSG-2 today until Thursday

David J Taylor
 

The Meteosat Rapid Scanning Service (RSS) is periodically interrupted for short periods of time.

These temporary outages in the service are used to exercise the Meteosat SEVIRI instrument mechanics in Full Earth Scan (FES) mode*, which is required to keep the mechanism in good repair.

The baseline operational period for the RSS is 26 days of continuous rapid scanning, followed by two days of full earth disc scanning, over 11 months per year.

On 27 March 2018 Meteosat-9 stopped RSS, after Meteosat-10 became prime RSS spacecraft. Meteosat-9 now provides gap filling for Meteosat-10.

Dear All

Up to now we have worked with 32Bit TC/EKU software even under 64Bit GNU/Linux.
The new native 64Bit GUN/Linux TC/EKU software seems to be a real step forward.
I now have for the first time an EUMETCast receiver for T1 + T2 that works in
a decent way *without* using a RAM disk even on my ancient PC hardware.

PC 10 year old Fujitsu Siemens P7935 8GB RAM. OS Devuan 2.0.0 amd64 GNU/Linux.
Receives Basic + HVS-1 + HVS-2  with a TBS-6903X card and processes on the fly
all Sentinel-3A and Sentinel-3B OLCI EFR as original, normalized and equalized.

Exports all files via NFS for special processing with EUMETCastView or PyTroll.

Cheers,
Ernst

Hi Ernst,

The latest version looks indeed very promising . I didn't found the time yet to install it. Life gets in the way ....

Ernst,

It will be interesting to see when/if Windows users get a 32-bit version. As far as I know we only have a 32-bit version at the moment.

Ernst Lobsiger
 

David

It is my understanding that for Windows you have 32Bit and 64Bit versions of the new EKU software but only one 32Bit *.msi installer for the TC-client. So this most probably contains a 32Bit version of the TC-client only. Under GNU/Linux (according to the Readme) you *must* have the 64Bit EKU software installed to make the 64Bit TC-client work. Not sure you can use the 64Bit EKU software for a 32Bit TC-client under Windows. If not EUMETSAT should/will? deliver a native 64Bit TC-client for Windows too. Maybe OPS knows more ...

Cheers,
Ernst

Ernst,

Yes, you are correct about the 32/64-bit eToken installer. I didn't change my eToken software on the basis of either "if it works, leave it" or "laziness". Or both!

It's just a 32-bit client which is supplied. A 64-bit driver is what I'm using for the eToken software right now, so either that or Windows knows how to translate the 32-bit calls from TelliCast into 64-bit functions in the driver. A lot of software is like that.

When showing the NOAA20 VIIRS band on the 3D globe with all show all segments, is there a way to separate ascending from descending passes? I must be missing something because with all the overlaps I can't find a way to switch off one set or select only descending for example.

========================================================================

James when there is a lot of segments I switch off 'show all segments' and then run through them all by using the right hand scroll on the 3D map. The number that show each time is dictated by the number entered in the setting 'show number of segments in satellite path'. I have it set to ten. So as you scroll one comes off and the next one comes on. I find that works really well and very quickly.
You cannot as such select only ascending or descending (as far a I know !) but the above lets you get to what you want speedily as it runs through each orbit. Very useful.

Douglas.
