Re: Unencrypted Eumetcast ?

As far as I know you always need an EKU. Some time ago this wasn't necessary for essential data, but that has been changed.

Hi Hugo,
From memory the 'essential' timeslots can be received without the EKU. These
are every three hours (00:00,03:00,etc UTC). I've found that quite useful for testing new reception systems in the past but something may have changed, not tried the non-EKU data in a couple of years. I also think you still need a username/password - so it might be worth asking OPS about that.

Both,

Section B.1.1 of the trouble-shooting guide gives the generic username and password for the non-encrypted data.

Hi group,

Question : 
Is  there a time of day where it is possible to receive Eumetcast without the EKU dongle ?
Or is Eumetcast encrypted 24/7 ?

BUFRdisplay - removal of templates facility

fbreame
 

If anyone uses my BUFRdisplay program (see www.elnath.org.uk), I propose to remove the templates facility in a future issue (if you use it you will know what it is).

It seemed a good idea at the time, but the definition files were diffcult to write and of limited utility.  I haven't maintained them for years, and am not sure that they apply to any current BUFR files. In any case, they would not work with a good many BUFR files (those with a variable number of items in them).

In the interests of cleaning up the code, I will therefore remove this facility in the near future, unless anyone is using it and wants it retained. If so, please let me know quickly and I will leave it in, although it will be unsupported.

I am always pleased to hear from anyone using BUFRdisplay (there are few out there!).

TP1 BS signal level.

22:45 BST (21:45 GMT) and my EUMETCast BS SNR is (still) down to 13.2/3 from 13.9/14.00 at this time of night under clear sky conditions.

I think you will find that the two designations are:

GMT Standard Time (what we call GMT)
GMT Daylight Time (what we call BST)

Perhaps that's AOL for you!

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

Alberto,


Unless your signal level is particularly low, and "Satellite TV splitter"
will suffice.  If you /do/ have a low signal, you could consider adding an
in-line pre-amp.

I prefer to have one receiver definitely in control of the LNB, providing
the power and the 22 kHz switching signal.  For that reason, I prefer a
splitter where there is a DC-pass option on only a single leg.  These seem
to be less common, but here's a couple of examples:

  https://www.toolstation.com/shop/p66100?searchstr=Wideband%20TV%20&%20Satellite%20Splitter%202%20Way

  http://vision-products.co.uk/product/v26-102led/

If you are using a dual-tuner PCIe card such as the TBS 6903 you can connect
the two inputs together internally by software, so you might not need the
splitter at all.

Cheers,
David

It's not as obvious, but I think TP2 is down as well.  Both reported to EUMETSAT this morning.
Thanks to the folk who provide MRTG monitoring - we could do with more especially for transponder 2.

I too have seen a reduction in the TP1 signal since yesterday evening but only about 0.5 SNR. No apparent reduction for TP2.

Keep in mind that I am still experiencing a drop of about 0.5/0.6 SNR in signal which started well over 2 months ago.

At the moment my TP1 and TP2 signal are exactly the same ( about 12.4/12.5 ].

Ian.

David, Ian and All,

Yes, signal down here earlier this morning in SW London.
Not quite sure 'where it is' at the moment owing to my diurnal variation.
