Hi Carol,

re:
> Ah ok! That makes more sense.

Yup :-)

re:
> How long will it be in mode 4?

Here is the last notice we received from ESPCOperations:

"Update#1 GOES-16 Mode-4 change did not began until 1820Z

 Topic: GOES-16 and GOES-17 ABI Mode Change

 Date/Time Issued: December 04, 2018 1829 UTC

 Date/Time of Initial Impact: December 4, 2018 1800 UTC

 Date/Time of Expected End: December 4, 2018 2200 UTC

 Length of Event: 4 hours

 Details/Specifics of Change:

 On December 4, 2018 at 1800 UTC, the GOES-16 (GOES-EAST) and GOES-17 
 Advanced Baseline Imagers (ABI) will operate in Continuous Full Disk 
 Mode (mode 4) for 4 hours for testing storage updates. Continuous Full 
 Disk Mode means products will be generated for Full Disk only, every 5 
 minutes.


 This test will be cancelled in the event of a Critical Weather Day

My guess is that they are running both GOES-16 and GOES-17 in mode 4 to
test the ground system(s) capability to handle the maximum data rate.

Cheers,

Tom
