Note added in proof: At their consortium meeting on 19-21 November LASCO and EIT agreed that on average EIT's data rate would increase by 2 kbps (to approximately 3 kbps) and LASCO's by 1.6 kbps (to 5.8 kbps). It should be noted that this ratio of telemetry bandwidth, and the corresponding requirements for LEB resources, are average values. To maintain the flexibility to run a variety of observing plans, the actual ratio for any given day will be decided by the joint science planning procedures of the two experiments, and they envision observing plans that could deviate in either direction from the mean values of 3 and 5.8 kbps.
