Changes to User Notification Service Messages

EUMETSAT plans to update the User Notification Service (UNS) in Spring 2007. The proposed changes will be introduced in two phases.

Change description

First changes to be implemented on 2 April 2007 are linked to the 0 degree prime satellite swap from Meteosat-8 to Meteosat-9 and include the following:
  1. Meteosat service message will no longer include the reference to satellite number in their title. For example:
    "0 deg SEVIRI High Rate Meteosat-8 News" becomes "Meteosat 0 degree High Rate SEVIRI News"
  2. The existing messages for Low Rate SEVIRI, Meteorological Products, Meteorological Data Dissemination, Foreign Satellite Data and Data Collection and Retransmission services messages will be combined into one message type called "Meteosat 0 degree Multi-Service News/Administration"
The remaining changes, as outlined below, will be implemented by end 2nd Quarter 2007.

Impact to users

The impact on 2 April 2007 will be the following:
