Details/Specifics of Change:
This is a status update involving the NOAA-17 MIRP rephase function.
The NOAA-17 MIRP rephase function was disabled on March 9, 2010. It was toggled at 2010/084 19:57:15 and 2010/085 17:53:50. Two more will be taken, one on Monday (at 20:00 UTC), and one on Tuesday (at 19:37 UTC). At each instance of the rephase commanding, there may be a few frames of lost data. Currently, the “bar code” noise effect is still present in the data. Users will get notified when our engineers come up with and implement a solution.
