NWS Weather Wire is Changing on June 30, 2015

Posted on: May 30th, 2013 by John Castorina No Comments

The WeatherWire satellite downlink will remain on the same satellite SES1 located at 101 deg West, however the Weather Wire downlink technology is changing to DVB-S2. Your original CSC-provided Calypso satelitte receiver will no longer be compatible, and a new DVB-S2 satellite receiver will be required, along with a more stable LNB with a local oscillator stability of at least +/1 10khz.

Your Marta Systems’ “Skytap for WeatherWire” software will also need to be upgraded to acquire the DVB-S2 receiver’s Ethernet data output.

Contact Marta Systems at 805-933-1270 or at if you have any questions.
