If not, you may be interested in developing such decoders since CREX bulletins are available via FOS. (see http://www.arl.noaa.gov/ready-bin/getchbay.pl?product=wave_guidance for recent bulletins for today). I would think your university customers would be interested in getting more observations. If you need documentation describing the CREX format let me know....I can get you a copy. John Kelley NOAA p.s. Are your decoders written in Perl? If not, want language do you use?
