Extra files EARS/ATOVS -Amsua, Hirs
Yes I think it would be great if the file handling for the
retransmitted NOAA Amsua and Hirs files could be built in to MSG
Manager in the future to take care of all those files MSG transmits.
The ATOVs Reader is good for viewing but does not look after the file
handling at present.
It might be worthwhile to have an overlay option for putting ATOVs
image sections over HRIT images.

Perhaps there is some misunderstanding here. The ATOVS data has nothing to
do with MSG. Last year Eumetsat started their Eumetcast service to provide
ATOVS (vertical sounding data... not images) from a range of ground
receiving stations. You can only receive the data if you apply and register
with Eumetsat. The data does not come down in any of the MSG data streams
but comes down on its own, Eumetsat Data Channel 1.
I do agree however that the excellent file management options would be
useful in the ATOVS reader, but ATOVS must be kept quite separate from MSG.
There is a good explanation of what the AMSU-A/B(active Microwave)
and HIRS (Active Infrared) instruments do on the Eumetsat site:

different list? Discussion of future updates to my ATOVS Reader is
perahps best on the SatSignal list.
