he NOAA Wallops Command and Data Acquisition Station (WCDAS) has
a power outage for Wednesday, May 11, 2016, to perform critical
on the power system. This power outage will disrupt the EMWIN
Efforts are underway to mitigate this outage by continuing the EMWIN
broadcast from the WCDAS backup stations. The WCDAS power outage can
expected to last as long as 12 hours although there is a possibility
work will be completed in a shorter time period. If a Critical
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
throughout the power outage, including ByteBlaster and the EMWIN FTP
service. If convenient and both satellites are accessible, users may
to consider reorienting their antennas to the other GOES satellite,
the signal disappear on the preferred satellite.
