All,

I had a chat with EUMETSAT during the week and the situation regarding
encryption
now appears to be more definite.

Current plan is that December 2nd will be encryption test day and there will
be several hours of encryption.
Some users have already been supplied with the EKU - EUMETCast Key Unit - and
will be feeding back results.
Others will receive nothing - so be pre-warned.

Full encryption is now planned for March 2004.

The 'key' will be supplied by EUMETSAT with the supporting software for
40 Euro.

Regards,
John Tellick.
