the current geostationary satellites (Met-7) analogue WEFAX will end when the new MSG-1 all digital satellite takes over at 0 deg (end 2004).
When operational MSG-1 will be known as Meteosat-8 and will transmit LRIT (Low Rate Image Transmission).
Eumetsat is relaying the signal via Hotbird and this can be received using a TechniSat SkyStar 2 PCI DVB receiver card. This is a digital satellite TV 'free to air' satellite receiver that is installed inside your computer.

: "Dear Silvio,
: Meteosat WEFAX is being switched off in 10 months time so we do not
: recommend purchase of any equipment for WEFAX reception."
: Is it true?
