ESPC Reported data outage and delays
The MG-1 antenna at McMurdo which supports Metop-A has been down since DOY162. Until further notice all Metop-A data will be received via full orbit download in Svalbard. Data which was previously scheduled for a half orbit to be received at McMurdo will suffer a small latency due to the delay in download.

ESPC is not receiving TRMM data. The primary machine at the has failed and the backup machine is unavailable. Engineers are working to resolve the problem but cannot estimate how long the outage will last.

ESPC began receiving Cape Ferguson data June 13, 2012 @ 0658z.
