SUBJECT - MAINTENANCE EVENT
The NWS is planning a maintenance event for the backup Master Ground
Station -BMGS- during the following time frame
Start - 03/20/17
Stop - 03/24/17
The maintenance is required to upgrade the satellite equipment at the backup
site. During this maintenance event, we are expecting no interruptions in
service while the primary Master Ground Station remains operational. As the
maintenance proceeds, we will be shifting the satellite uplink back and forth
between the Master Ground Stations for testing purposes.
We will continue to provide updates as the work proceeds to keep you current
on our progress. If you have any questions, concerns, or issues concerning this
maintenance event, please contact us at 301.713.9344.
Your patience as we work to improve the reliability and availability of the
NOAAPort/SBN service is appreciated.
