A reminder that the next two weeks see some interruptions to images,
particularly on Tuesday and Friday. I expect to see a normal flow
of Foreign Satellite Data, but the products derived from MSG-1 data
will be interrupted.


This was the Weekly Schedule Report for Week 52/2003 Issued 15:22

Activities planned for week 02:
There will be an MSG-1 decontamination starting on the 06/01/04.
This procedure will have the following impact on SEVIRI imaging.

06/01/04 from 11:15 until 09/01/04 12:00 only VIS channels will
available with degraded quality.
09/01/04 from 12:00 until 09/01/04 13:15 no SEVIRI data available.

MSG-1 relocation manoeuvre to 3.4 deg. West will begin on 14/01/04.

There may be some degradation to the images during the manoeuvre,
users will be informed of the impact during the relocation period.
