Op http://www.sat.dundee.ac.uk/future.php End of operations at the Satellite Receiving Station het volgende:
Important! End of operations at the Satellite Receiving Station

Funding provided by NERC for the Dundee Satellite Receiving Station ended on 31st March 2019. Core operations have continued while other possibilities were pursued, but the University of Dundee has now decided to decommission the Station.

We had been hopeful that a solution would be found to continue operations at the University, but sadly it has not been possible. Current operations on the University campus will end in the coming days, although the existing website may still be available for a short period as the decommissioning progresses.

While we are disappointed with this outcome, Station staff are seeking to re-establish the facility, independent of the University, at a new location in the near future. We encourage our users to follow us on Twitter @dundeesat for information on another Dundee-based satellite station being launched in the coming months.

In the meantime, we sincerely thank all users and others who supported DSRS for over 40 years.

For more on the Station's situation and history see the article SpaceFlight Vol.61 No.6 June 2019 (PDF) (th article is in this issue: cover image (PDF)).
Waar kan ik nu op internet nog wel de actuele Meteosat-beelden in hoge resolutie vinden, met daarbij ook een archief aan opeenvolgende beelden? Die waren te vinden op http://www.sat.dundee.ac.uk/geobrowse/geobrowse.php met daarbij ook een archief. Een archief van opeenvolgende satellietbeelden is erg handig om de ontwikkeling van weerssystemen te volgen, bijv. een tropische cycloon die de extratropische transitie doormaakt.
