missing key - complete data stall :(

Last night at 22:50 UTC, all receptions on my receiver came to a grinding
halt. The recv.log file shows thousands of lines looking like these:

Yesterday, one of the HDDs had become full, after clearing a few GOME
folders (presently useless to me anyway due to not having a reader for them
yet...), the box was up and running again.

I have no faint idea of where to start looking for a solution - any helpful
hints? Thanks!

Cheers,
U. (seeing it rain outside also without sat assistance...)

Ulrich,

Sorry to hear about your problems. Suggestion, check that your eToken is still working. It may be worth pulling it out and back in again - you can do this "live", but if you are in any doubt, you can reboot.

As to the GOME data, simply comment out [EPS-5] in your recv-channels.ini, or use the Auto-clean function in the MSG Data Manager to remove unprocessed files from the EUMETCast \received\ directory tree every so often (e.g. 24 hours), or schedule a nightly run of my TrimTree program.

If the GOME data is in BUFR format, perhaps Francis Breame's reader (described in the GEO Quarterly) can help?

Cheers,
David

David, thanks for the immediate reply. The pink T is pink, and the data are
streaming in 5 Mbit/s, according to the Tellicast monitor. Is this located
before or behind the Token Check? I checked my Eumetcast account some
weeks ago, and it looked good for two more years or so, just re-checked,
good through March 2013.

I powered the receiver completely down and restarted it after a few minutes,
no avail.

Wouldn't the T tunr un-pink if there was a problem with the etoken?

Oooops - I was out in the afternoon, and just see - it started working again
somewhen at around 4 p.m. UTC. So, another unsolved mystery remains in
history.

Strange, very strange.

I'll report if any new phenomena emerge.

Thanks for your telepathetological assistance - the only rational
explanation... THEY read this list too, I guess... :)))

Cheers,
U.

Ulrich,
There is just one 'source' changing the colour of the T: the message channel (PID nr. 100).
If no message channel comes in (because of no sat signal, or because of no receiver connected at all, or because of no PID 100 set) then colour is red.
If a message channel is received but not from Eumetcast then it is yellow.
If a message channel is received from Eumetcast then T is purple.
Etoken has nothing to do with that.

Today I got a question from a Eumetcast user "suffering" from yellow T. The cause: The wind did blow his disc to SKY at 13 east.
Etoken can not change the colour of your T, but the wind can...

Rob,
thanks for that comment. A few hours after my last message, data got stuck
again and still are.
Yes, we had some pretty fast air here too, but the failure occured many
hours after the gusts and squalls settled. I'll check the etokens seat in its
socket in the afternoon.

U.

Rob,
your guess - or advice - was right. I have this monstrous toroidal mirror on
the balcony, exposed to our favourite strong wind side of the house. It is
mounted on two very massive concrete slabs, each weighing more than
hundred kilogramms, and they surely did not move a millimeter despite the
~60 knots of SW wind we had in some gusts here.

The signal appeared and disappeared in a tidal time pattern over two days -
characteristic for a just slight displacement from the desired direction. Now it
was clear, the air had been to fast.

The mirror is mounted on a sort of tripod, with a massive foreleg and some
less convincingly looking hind-legs. These are connected with bolts, also
bolted to the concrete slabs. Well, nothing had really moved from its place,
but when I pushed the mirror moderately from NE, against the direction from
where the wind had worked, the whole setup jumped back a centimeter or
two at its outer diameter, like if some tension in the tripod had been
released. Now, it sits in a stable position again, but I will alter the column on
which it sits to a massive pole(stainless steel tube), welded to a plate that
will be bolted to the concrete slabs, and stabilized with some angles
minimizing any lateral motion.

I'll have to think again about installing this utility to record the signal strength
over time. Adding another step of complexity kept me off so far, but ...

Thanks again, and stay tuned!

Cheers,
U.
