Start|All programs|eToken|eToken properties - is the correct route.

OK, Robert.

The two values (user_key and user_key_crypt) will be different, but they are both valid alternatives for the same user.

Possibly, uninstalling and re-installing, or using a "Repair installation" for the eToken (if that is offered) might restore the shortcut, but see what EUMETSAT advise.

Hello,

meteosat-7 with WGS84 and with the size of HRV images and columns
offset but i dont know what is wrong.

Have seen that the datum or projection is different for msg is: MSG-1
projection or CGMS -MSG Perspective. And there is an intermediate
step i should apply with constants CFAC and LFAC but i don't know how
to apply it.

Best regards,

Luis,

The georeferencing is described in the EUMETSAT document CGMS 03

"Coordination Group for
Meteorological Satellites
LRIT/HRIT Global Specification"

which you can download from their Web site. CFAC and HFAC are in pixels per degree, and are sent with the data.

Robert,

Please check your user name and user_key/user_key_crypt. Be aware that the entry in recv.ini may take one of two formats:

[recipient]
user_name=theuser

[recipient]

If you are sure these are correct, contact EUMETSAT.

Re: Dexatek Eurobird

David,

Any idea what
changed between the DVB World software which didn't work and that which
did?
Well I can't pin it down to a precise component but........
You see I'm one of those that actually read the instructions so when I received my DVBWorld box
I had a look at the Geo cd content and printed off the manual about installing the receiver for
EUMETCast. On the 2nd page it says

Insert the mini CDROM and wait for the setup menu to launch
So I looked in the box, found the mini cd and installed the software. I've just had a closer look at
the mini cd content and compared it to the Geo cd and as far as I can tell they are both the same.
I also had a look at the dvbc3101 usb driver for xp and the same file (dated 11/03/2004) exists on
both cd's so, although I haven't actually looked I assume all the other files are the same and exist
on both cd's.

The only thing I can say is that after installing the Geo version everything appeared much more
responsive. This might be a consequence of installing/removing the Dexatek software and
perhaps leaving behind a more suitable xp driver or the messing about with the Ramdisk software.

With regard to the actual hardware the only difference is that my DVB box is powered from a
linear power supply rather than the supplied switch mode supply which caused far to much
radiated rfi

Italian EUMETCast license renewal.

geojohnt@...
 

Hi,

For those who seem to have missed the recent discussion, the renewal of
EUMETCast licences in Italy is different from most other European countries -
the renewal is not done by EUMETSAT.
And, EUMETSAT will not remind you when your (Italian) licence is about to
expire [which they do for most of the rest of European amateur users for
whom they (EUMETSAT) deal with licensing].

Italian EUMETCast licensing is dealt with by Meteoam - which I presume is
the Italian Met. Office.

So, Italian amateur EUMETCast users must contact Meteoam regarding any
questions they have about their licences.

I hope that clears up the situation.

Regards,
John Tellick.
GEO.


Re: License Renew Question

Ian Deans <isdeans1.-_@...>
 

Vincenzo, if your new license is authorised for a period of 3 years then
clearly it does not need to be renew annually. You are covered until
1/6/2011 and need do nothing until just before that date.

Regards
Ian.
