[McIDAS #WGZ-508649]: MTSAT Data



Hi Greg,

OK, this fits with the insight that SSEC provided.  It looks like JMA website
indication that MTSAT-2 is the operational satellite is not quite correct.

OK.  The fact that the central longitude is 140E shows that the image really
is from MTSAT-1R (according to the guidance we received from SSEC).  So, it
looks like everything is OK, no?

Cheers,

Tom
