It appears for the moment that there is no charge in France - according to
the "Convention" (=licence).

Best regards - Alan

Luca,

In Spain and Germany, there seems be an annual charge, but not in UK, NL,

Is there a charge in Belguim?

MSG-1 resolution (again)

Robert Moore
 

I'm jury-rigged for email now! Brilliant blue sky this morning; then a thin
layer of cirrus, I was able to watch the build up of cloud on MSG-1, and in
some cases identify individual clouds/cloud formations - all confirmed by
looking out of the window!
Are others using MSG-1 to follow very short range changes over a short
time-scale? And to think it's going to get even better!

no, there will be no charge in Belgium for our category. And looks
like Italy will not have any charges too.

I will send the paperwork tomorrow and patiently wait... :-)

Thanks, Luca

Hello David,

It would seem that Yahoo has something against you David, it sent
through your last message prefixing it with [spam] and telling me
that the attached message was likely to be spam! It would seem like
they have gone a bit mad with their filters as this has happened to
all sorts of mail from them this morning. Might be well worth
everyone checking their own filters to make sure the [spam] prefix
doesn't end up in the bin.

John,

Many thanks for that. I mainly use the Web interface (for my most
popular groups) and this doesn't have the delays and problems of e-
mail. However, this whole spam situation, particularly blacklists,
is now completely out of hand. If someone wants a PC tool, try K9.
It does an excellent job.

A bit ironic that there is an advert at the top of this screen for
Yahoo! Groups Spam Guard. I expect that's triggered another alert
somewhere!

Thanks for the warning John, and you recommendation to check filters.

Cheers,
David

MSG License: good news from Belgium

Luca Bertagnolio <lucaberta@...>
 

Hi all,

yesterday I had the pleasure to find an envelope from IRM/KMI, the
Belgian Royal Met Office, with three copies of the "MSG Draft Licence
5 - Educational Use/Research Project" already filled in my name, and
ready to be signed. I will then need to send one copy to EUMETSAT
and one to IRM/KMI.

The license paper needs to be completed in Article 7, Duration, with
the beginning and end of the period required. And this is where I
have a question. Was this period already fixed to, say, one year in
other countries licenses, or did you need to specify this, like I am
being asked?

I am not sure if there is minimum or maximum time to ask for the
license, so I am looking for experiences from others to avoid
requesting a too long or too short period for my license.

Thanks all for sharing your experiences regarding MSG licensing.

Bye, Luca
Brussels, Belgium


HRV section selection

Lawrence <lawrence@...>
 

Given that we are now into routine Meteosat-8 operations, I wonder why
the HRV section always seems to include the 'wrong' side of the
illuminated earth, particularly in the evening? Currently, as at 5.30pm
the eastern part of the southern polar region is being imaged even
though of course it is the western part that is in sunshine.

The original price for working kit - 1000 evro.

Delivery in Ukraine. The dispatching should be insured.

I hope for mutual understanding and help.

What I intended to ask was:

In GeoSatSignal, is it possible to put maps on the viewed images.
I have the "Show Country Boundaries" checked but nothing appears on
the images other than the ThermalFC and remapped. I would like to
do the same as appears in DataManager but in Geo Sat Signal.

GeoSatSignal regards the source images as untouchable. So if you
want to see the country boundaries just select "greyscale" as the
false-colour option. The False-colour tab should then show the
boundaries. Open visible or IR as you wish.

BTW: questions about my software would be best asked in the
SatSignal Yahoo group.

Greenland should just be visible on the HRV image. You could try
setting the "clear images" check box to clear out the old image
before reading in the new.

Secondly is it possible to put a map on the images as seen in the
data-manager?
Yes, that is in the current beta. You can view outlines either on
the Detailed Image tab, or with the saved picture. You can use
either the Countries.dat file from WXtrack (see my Web site) or
GSHHS data.

Payment by Credit Card

Sally Wannop <wannop@...>
 

Dear All

As you are aware EUMETSAT can now accept payment by credit card for the EUMETCast Client Software and EUMETCast Key Unit.

Contrary to John Tellick's earlier email, we would prefer you not to send your credit card details by fax. We do not have a dedicated fax number established for this and therefore cannot guarantee security. Similarly, please do not send your credit card details by email. Our preferred method is by telephone, the telephone numbers to use are:

+49 6151 807366 / 377

We will be looking at improvements to this procedure, but at present, this is the recommended process.

Ton,

You actually remind me....

It will be helpful for those who get new eTokens to report any problems
they get - you'll have to get the new user name and password right to
start with, and I found that the SkyStar V4.2.8 drivers completely
unreliable with eTokens.....might have been my PC, of course!
