GOES-16 set to become GOES-EAST in November

GOES-16, the most advanced weather satellite NOAA has ever developed, will be moved to the GOES-East position once it is declared operational in November.  NOAA officials announced the decision regarding GOES-16’s placement, during the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook news conference at NOAA’s Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, Maryland.

When GOES-16 takes over, EMWIN-N users will need to point their dishes to GOES-West to receive the EMWIN-N signal.  GOES-16 will replace the EMWIN-N signal with HRIT/EMWIN.  HRIT/EMWIN uses a different signaling method and will require a new receiver.
