DATA MGT MESSAGE 05-16.01

TO  EMERGENCY MANAGERS WEATHER INFORMATION NETWORK /EMWIN/
     NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE /NWS/ CUSTOMERS.

FROM  GISC/RTH WASHINGTON DATA MANAGEMENT

NOTICE TO ALL USERS OF THE E
MWIN BROADCAST SERVICE
:
T
he NOAA Wallops Command and Data Acquisition Station (WCDAS) has
scheduled
a power outage for Wednesday, May 11, 2016, to perform critical
maintenance
on the power system. This power outage will disrupt the EMWIN
broadcast.
Efforts are underway to mitigate this outage by continuing the EMWIN
broadcast from the WCDAS backup stations.  The WCDAS power outage can
be
expected to last as long as 12 hours although there is a possibility
the
work will be completed in a shorter time period.  If a Critical
Weather
Day is declared, the event will be rescheduled for June 8, 2016.

The continuation/availability of the EMWIN broadcast by the GOES-West
satellite throughout the power outage is likely.

The continuation/availability of the EMWIN broadcast by the GOES-East
satellite throughout the power outage is uncertain.

End users are encouraged to use alternate EMWIN dissemination
services
throughout the power outage, including ByteBlaster and the EMWIN FTP
service. If convenient and both satellites are accessible, users may
want
to consider reorienting their antennas to the other GOES satellite,
should
the signal disappear on the preferred satellite.

End users who will be satisfied receiving US products - without the
International and image products  may want to consider the NOAA
Weather
Wire Service (NWWS) Internet dissemination service.  If interested,
users
should request accounts immediately, for both:
OI Account - User ID and Password:
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwws/#tab3; and
EUC Software Request:http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwws/#tab4

Situation updates will be posted to the EMWIN Issues Web Page:
