Service Bulletin: G4 GOES Transmitters (Important)

After recent changes to the GPS satellite system that GOES transmitters use for their time synchronization, some G4 GOES transmitters have been found to transmitting out of their designated time slots.

IMPORTANT: Any station found to be transmitting out of its time slot may be transmitting over another GOES station resulting in data loss and therefore needs to be either switched off or corrected as soon as possible. The failures to date have spanned over several weeks and therefore any G4 currently in operation may be susceptible to this issue and begin transmitting out of it’s time slot.

Download the Customer Service Bulletin for further details. It also provides instructions for those customers that have a G4 GOES transmitter in either a fixed or portable RAWS.
