20/05/2024: Limited morning hotspots

There is an issue with the NASA Terra satellite preventing it from delivering hotspot data directly to downlink stations as it passes overhead. Hotspots will still be received in the late morning or late evening as Landgate are now sourcing these data direct from NASA. These hotspots will be available with a delay compared to the direct broadcast hotspots but many will still be available in the late morning. There will also be somewhat less hotspots than before, until the direct broadcast issue is fixed.
