GOES 13 scheduled to replace GOES 12 on April 14, 2010

From NESDIS: GOES 13 is scheduled to replace GOES 12 on April 14, 2010.  See this link for more information:

This change will have a big impact on EMWIN users.  GOES 13 will transition the EMWIN data stream from 9600 baud to 19200 baud.  This will affect anyone receiving data from the GOES East satellite. 

When the transition occurs, if you do not have equipment capable of receiving the new EMWIN-N signal, you will be required to reposition your dish to the GOES West satellite.
