The troubled Galileo E20 satellite restarted E1 signal transmission Wednesday evening, August 6.
Galileo E20, also known as GSAT0104, the fourth in-orbit validation (IOV) satellite, has been set “unavailable until further notice” according to the European GNSS Service Centre because of a sudden, unexpected loss of power on May 27.
Based on a selected set of IGS MGEX stations and all CONGO stations, the first signals were tracked at AREG, AUT0, LLAG, and UNB3 at 23:13:00. No E5 signals and no navigation messages are currently transmitted. However, some JAVAD GNSS receivers report from time to time false E5a locks with zero or extremely small C/N0.
