Thanks David. I usually check that but forgot that NOAA 20 is now operational and appearing there, but still under test for Eumetcast.

NOAA 20 seems to have been under test for ages. Not sure why Eumetsat are taking so long to have the data available to all !!!

Yes the VIIRS M and DNB data testing started on 16th April this year from Athens, Kangerlussuaq, Lannion, Maspalomas and Svalbard stations. so a very long test period considering the satellite is operational.
I wonder if Eumetsat are just waiting until the data is transferred to TP1 HVS-1 from TP2 but that is not until 22nd August (or perhaps until all the EARS stations are up and running).

Regards,
Douglas.

Update #8: Processing Science Data on all Instruments except OMPS. SVL
rev 3453 AOS 1728Z. OMPS is expected to begin processing at around
1827Z. Spacecraft, CERES, VIIRS, and CRIS data was partially processed
on the previous SVL rev 3352 AOS 1549Z. Next update should be final when
N20 is back to nominal operations.

Update #7: No stored mission data was recovered duringSvalbard rev3449
AOS 1032Z.. Multiple instruments continue to be in safe mode and are
not producing science data. Engineers have arrived and are troubleshooting.

Update #6: No stored mission data was recovered during McMurdo rev 3448
AOS 0945Z.. Multiple instruments continue to be in safe mode and are
not producing science data. Engineers have arrived and are troubleshooting.

Update #5: No stored mission data was recovered during McMurdo rev 3448
AOS 0853Z.. Multiple instruments continue to be in safe mode and are
not producing science data. Engineers have arrived and are troubleshooting.

Update #4: No stored mission data was recovered during Svalbard rev
3447 AOS 0805Z.. Multiple instruments continue to be in safe mode and
are not producing science data. Engineers have arrived and are
troubleshooting.

Update #3: No stored mission data was recovered during Svalbard rev
3447 AOS 0713Z.. Multiple instruments continue to be in safe mode and
are not producing science data. Engineers have arrived and are
