[McIDAS #WGZ-508649]: MTSAT Data

Hi Greg,

SSEC passed along some additional, useful information on the status
of MTSAT-2 vs MTSAT-1R:


I found that the operative part of this message is:

 *Topic: *Meteorological Observation by MTSAT-1R to Support Scheduled
  Maintenance of MTSAT's Ground System*

 *Date/Time/Issued**: *October 17, 2013 1545 UTC*

 *Product(s) or Data Impacted:* MTSAT-2**

 *Date/Time of Initial Impact:*October 22, 2013 0300 UTC*

 *Date/Time of Expected End*:  December 19, 2013  0200 UTC******

 *Length of Outage:*N/A*

 *Details/Specifics of Change:*

  The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) plans to perform maintenance of
  MTSAT's ground system starting on October 22, 2013 and ending on
  December 19, 2013.  During the ground system maintenance period, primary
  satellite operations will be switched from MTSAT-2 (145E) to MTSAT-1R
  (140E).  Direct readout users will not have to move their ground antennas
  as MTSAT-1R data will be broadcast from 140E.

  On December 19, 2013, at 0200 UTC, primary satellite operations will
  resume on MTSAT-2.

The reason for the switch to MTSAT-1R is now clear as is the scheduled
switch back to MTSAT-2.
