The announcement of British Admiralty
ADMIRALTY - Radio Signals 1345 (ADRS1345) - file sizes expected to increase in April/May 2021
Due to the introduction of the new Iridium SafetyCast GMDSS satellite system, British Admiralty has to re-write large sections of ALRS Volume 5, and consequently ADRS1345. As there will be a significant number of new images for these new sections over the next four or five weeks, we anticipate that the file sizes for ADRS1345 will be larger than normal during that time.
While British Admiralty cannot confirm precisely how much larger these files will be, they do not expect these increases to cause significant issues to users. Where possible, British Admiralty will attempt to stagger the introduction of these sections to minimize impact on customers. Should the file sizes at any point exceed the normal recommended sizes accepted by user systems, British Admiralty will update users again accordingly. British Admiralty apologises in advance for the inconvenience this may cause.
