24 - Repeat the following 11 octets for each contributing band (nb = 1,NB)

(24+11(nb-1)) - (25+11(nb-1))  Satellite series of band nb (code table defined by originating/generating centre)
(26+11(nb-1)) - (27+11(nb-1))  Satellite number of band nb (code table defined by originating/generating centre)
(28+11(nb-1)) - (29+11(nb-1))  Instrument types of band nb (code table defined by originating/generating centre)
(30 +11(nb-1))                       Scale factor of central wave number of band nb
(31+11(nb-1)) - (34+11(nb-1)) Scaled value of central wave number of band nb (units: m-1)
(24+11NB)                            Type of ensemble forecast (see Code table 4.6)

(24+11NB+2)                        Number of forecasts in ensemble

Note :
  Hours greater than 65534 will be coded as 65534
