[McIDAS #HUK-605825]: GOES-east Outage

Hi Fred,

Sorry for the slow replies; I am in Cartagena, Colombia at the moment,
not in Boulder.

That was turned off since the machine was basically overloaded with
other duties.

> I looked at the NESDIS PUB ADDE site, but

There have been two unsuccessful attempts to point the dish at GOES-14
back in Boulder.  Mike Schmidt is doing the work assisted by another
staff member, and has not been able to find the GOES-14 signal; both
he and I have no idea of what is wrong.  We know the LNB is OK since
the first time he tried, he swung to far west and locked onto GOES-West
(I verified this via IMGLISTs while pointing at the machine).  I
have not had any interactions with Mike for the past two days, so
I can not report on further attempts/progress; sorry.
