France: Launched about two years ago in August 2014, two Galileo satellites, GSAT0201 using PRN code E18 and GSAT0202 using PRN code E14, will start transmitting navigation messages for test purposes starting Friday, August 5, stated in two Notice Advisories to Galileo Users (NAGUs).

The Signal Health Status (SHS) flags will be set to “Test” and the Data Validity Status (DVS) flags will be set to WWG (working without guarantee).

The satellites will not be included in the broadcast almanacs.

Users are requested to provide feedback on usage of GSAT0201 and GSAT0202 by contacting the help desk on the European GNSS Service Centre web portal.
