Tbs 5925 - Problem with modcode For HVS-1

samu120497@...
 

Hi everyone, My name is Samuele. I'm from italy... My english speaking is very bad, i hope you understanding my problem: last year, with my old PC (updated from windows 8.1 to windows 10 two years ago) I correctly received satellite data from the 8PSK (bas) and 16APSK (hvs-1) modcodes. Unfortunately, a few months later the motherboard died and I had to change computers. I have reinstalled all the software following the procedures and the indications of Eumetsat but nowadays I only receive the data from the modcode 8psk while from 16apsk the quality is always at 0. In this time frame I have only changed computers, the satellite dish has not been moved. As a receiver I have a TBS5925 and the data is processed by BDADataEx version 1.1.4.9. Do any of you have a solution to my problem? Are there other people like me who already happened? Thanks in advance for your reply.

Samuele


Re: EUMETCASTView - Blue lines

Hugo
 

Hello,

The website http://hvanruys.github.io is maybe a bit outdated, but if you should read "VIIRS images" and "Making projections" you should have a better idea how EUMETastView works.
The second image you send is the raw image. It needs to be projected. This process will remove the blue lines.
Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
Hugo

I an decode an image as shown on the firdt image
But when I save it, I get loads of thin blue lines as shown on the second image

Can any one help me with this

Fire detection Amazon via Eumetcast VIIRS

fly.fechter@t-online.de
 

Hello,
Could you kindly tell me the correct settings for viewing the wildfires spreading in the Amazon region.
My MSG-1 manager shows only GRIB fire detection but no mention of VIIRS ! I just asked Eumetsat to add VIIRS to my account.
Thanks in advance,
Regards,
Roland

In case any of these changes may affect you......

Metop-C EARS regional data will start being distributed from 29 August.
https://www.eumetsat.int/website/home/News/DAT_4559629.html


The distribution of SNPP EDRs on EUMETCast will change from the Basic Service to the Transponder 2 High Volume Service.
https://www.eumetsat.int/website/home/News/DAT_4571033.html


EUMETCast Daily Logs will be changed on 12 September.

From EUMETSAT: https://www.eumetsat.int/website/home/News/DAT_4559629.html?lang=EN&pState=1


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Metop-C EARS regional data will start being distributed from 29 August 2019

Metop-C data will be added to the following regional services:

EARS-ATOVS (MHS and AMSU-A)
EARS-AVHRR
EARS-ASCAT

Notes:

Metop-C data will be added to the EARS-IASI service at a later stage
Metop-C data will be added to the EARS-NWC service when Metop-C is declared the prime operational Metop spacecraft, at which time the Metop-C data will replace the Metop-B data in the EARS-NWC service.

EUMETCast distribution:

The data will be distributed on EUMETCast Europe, Basic Service, using the following channel:

EUMETSAT Data Channel 1
Multicast address: 224.223.222.1
PID: 500
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My AVHRR Manager software has been processing this data for some time, so you should have no issues. No second or third instance required, just the current version:

https://www.satsignal.eu/software/AVHRRmanager.htm

Thanks for the new data!

Goes-16 & 17

Ferdinand Valk
 

For quite some time now the availability of both Goes 16 and 17 has been
meager to put it mildly and it looks as if backlog files get priority over
real-time data when something is disseminated. I wonder what is going on
here as EUMETSAT's UNS service, OSSI status and Alert messages do not
provide any information.
Does anyone know of any other source that is more informative on the
subject?

Thanks.
Ferdinand

=====================================
DOuglas,
I've been looing back over my 2014 August onwards mails, but it's difficult to find the exact discussion.  I think it would have been before HVS-2, and it was certainly something like what you described, a lack of data flow causing something (a disconnection?), and there was something to do with buffer sizes and TBS supplying a driver with (IIRC) one tuner having an 8-byte and the other a 64-bytes buffer.  This was experimental, and caused large, but almost equal, numbers of missed and recovered packets.  I recently went back to the old driver (1.0.5?) and these packets disappeared. It was a question of when that buffer emptied, something happening.  Of course, in TV reception a continual stream is expected, not bursts.
I cannot now recall whether EUMETSAT did add fill packets or not (ask ops, or K.-P.) but I'm unaware of any recent changes in that respect. On both tuners the Multicast PID is set to 8192.  On TP1, I have MODCOD set to all, and on the TP2 tuner to 16APSK 2/3.  I don't use the BS data from TP1 on that system, but the BDADataEx software will "see" BS data.
Sorry for a somewhat incomplete and unsatisfactory reply.

David GM8ARV
==========================================================================

Don't apologise David as that has filled in some of the gaps in my recollections.
They definitely did put in fill packets, but perhaps stopped it given the amount of data now being sent on HVS-1. Of course at the moment, and yet again, GOES data has virtually stopped so perhaps I am paying too much attention at a time with minimal data flow.
No news re the PDA service from NOAA but if that is to blame yet again it seriously needs smartening up.

Once services return to normal I will make an effort to check the BDADataEx icon more thoroughly.

Thanks for your help David.

Regards from a wet Dunblane,
Douglas.

Looks like GOES 17 image data has problems now as well.

No data since 18.00 UTC.
