Re: receiving and converting NOAAPort satellite data

Jason,

I don't know if anyone has responded and I've been busy moving 30 inches
of snow! However, you shouldn't have to convert them to McIDAS area
format. McIDAS can handle them as they come in. Tom Yoksas set my ADDE
up to access the files directly from our NOAAPORT ingestor's hard
drives.
