Note: In order to receive the new channels’ data on dedicated target directories, users need to edit cast_client-channels_hvs-2.ini and add the following sections for the new channels:

[channel]
name=E2H-S3A-10
target_directory=<target dir…>
tmp_directory=<tmp dir…>

[channel]
name=E2H-S3B-10
target_directory=<target dir…>
tmp_directory=<tmp dir…>

If the sections above are not added to cast_client-channels_hvs-2.ini, the data will be received under the target directory of the default channel (name=*) in case it is defined.

Users wishing to receive this product on EUMETCast Europe should register via our Earth Observation Portal (EOP).
