GOES-11 is on station to replace GOES-10 as the West satellite. On July 3, we will switch GOES-10 to GOES-11 in the TBUS bulletin. Users should not have problems continuing to use the current data provided as GOES-10 since it is based on the location before the maneuver to move the satellite. The switch will be made on Monday, July 3 to provide the proper data for GOES-11 in the TBUS bulletin.
