GOES Firmware Available Update

November 06, 2018 goes satellite
Good news for those experiencing issues with their GOES transmissions -- we now have firmware available that can be used to update the transmitters to restore transmissions. You can find more information and support materials at https://www.ysi.com/goes-support

We want to thank you for your patience and support as we worked to find a solution to this issue.

Has the webinar from 11/8 been posted so I can view it? Installing the firmware update is very straight forward but getting the logger to connect and the transmitter to transmit has been a hit and miss experience for me. Some sites begin working OK after a few hours but others don't. One site was upgraded at about 9:30 on Nov. 7 but the first transmission was not received until 3:55 am on Nov. 8. The difficult part is not knowing if the transmitter will function correctly until hours after the upgrade is installed. This is a major waste of time especially when some sites are as much as 6 hours away. Any suggestions?
