Is Meteor m2 active?
Meteor-M 2-2 was successfully launched on 5 July 2019. On 18 December 2019, it suffered a collision with either debris or a micrometeorite, which slightly changed the orbit and sent it tumbling. Stabilization and communications were restored after a few days. The damage suffered is under investigation.

What frequency is NOAA 15?
Mission. Automatic Picture Transmission (APT) transmission frequency is 137.62 MHz. Due to problems with the S-band transmitter high-gain antennas, NOAA-15 has been configured for High-Resolution Picture Transmission (HRPT) using the S-Band Transmitter #2 (1702.5 MHz) omnidirectional antenna.
Is NOAA-15 still active?

What frequency do weather satellites use?
NOAA 18 and NOAA 19 weather satellites provide free accessible weather data continuously through Automatic Picture Transmission at 137.9125 MHz and 137.1000 MHz frequencies.
Are QFH antennas directional?

How many GOES-R satellites are there?
The GOES system currently consists of GOES-13 operating as GOES-East in the eastern part of the constellation and GOES-15, operating as GOES-West. The GOES-R series will maintain the 2-satellite system implemented by the current GOES series. The GOES-R Series operational lifetime extends through December 2036.
Which two GOES series are currently orbiting the Earth?
The GOES system currently consists of GOES-13, operating as GOES-East, in the eastern part of the constellation at 75 degrees west longitude and GOES-15, operating as GOES-West, at 135 degrees west longitude. The GOES-R series will maintain the two-satellite system implemented by the current GOES series.
What does NOAA 18 do?
NOAA-18 is the first NOAA POES satellite to use Microwave Humidity Sounder (MHS) in place of Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU-B).
