UPDATE 23/07/2019 - I've done an internet search but cannot find any news, it appears (to me) that NOAA 15 has finally failed.
I have now stopped monitoring this (unless it fixes itself in the future).

UPDATE 26/07/2019 - Just had a pass of NOAA 15 while recording NOAA 19.
It looks like it's back in action!.
