NOAA-17 still in trouble

09:27 UTC Channel 2+4

NOAA 17 has scan motor problems with rising motor currents. Constant rephase by the MIRP was causing data dropouts on all the HRPT
stream and APT and GAC derivatives. Auto re-phase has now been disabled and the resulting AVHRR products are almost all unusable. NOAA continue with tests with a view to finding a solution.
