[LDM #KSK-757114]: GOES-16 GRB has partially stopped

Hi Art,

> As of October 1, the GOES-16 GRB data on the "difax" channel seems
> to have stopped for RadC, RadM1 and RadM2.

This is correct.  The reason is that GOES-16 switched to running in
mode 4, and in mode 4 full disk scans are conducted every 5 minutes
and CONUS and Mesoscale scans are suspeneded.

> Could someone take a look and see what happened?

This snippit from an administrative message should explain the situtation:

> I'm assuming the feed's okay since we're still getting GLM

The feed is fully functional.

> and RadF data along with the other various earth/sun space data.

Yup, full disk scanning is being tested on GOES-16 today.
