We encourage EGNOS Users to configure the GEO Satellites described on the table above accordingly in order to retrieve the optimal solution. Nevertheless, you can contact the EGNOS Helpdesk at egnos-helpdesk@essp-sas.eu, submitting an EGNOS Helpdesk form or calling at +34 911 236 555.

Moreover, the active GEO satellites are shown on the “EGNOS System Availability” Section on the homepage of the EGNOS User Support Website, as it provides real-time information on this matter. You can find further information on the GEO swap on Service Notice #15.
