Message Client Overhaul Part 2

Here is a picture of the latest changes to the message client.  These change are in the latest 3.9 beta.

The main window now features a product list.  A new request tab appears that works like the existing request window.  This consolidates several of the features into the main window.

GOES-15 to replace GOES-11 (West) in December 2011

If you are using GOES-West to receive the EMWIN datastream, this is a reminder that the GOES-West transition is planned for December 2011.  Based on information presented during the 2011 Satellite Direct Readout Conference, GOES-15 will be taken out of storage before the fall eclipse season for yearly inclination maneuver and imager testing.  It will start drifting to 135 degrees west  in October 2011.

If you have not upgraded your receiver for the EMWIN-N signal, now is the time to start planning.

Message Client Overhaul

I have started the process of overhauling the Message Client.  The main user interface will be receiving an update to provide more features. 

The first change gives users the ability to associate function keys with the Quick List products.  The second change allows selected Quick List items to be turned into Quick Buttons.  The Quick Buttons appear under the menu.

The following screen demonstrates the change.
