Radar Products evaluation=ADMIN NOTICE NOUS40 KWBC (fwd)

Hello IDD participants,

Below is a message from the NWS regarding changes that will affect the
NEXRAD feed starting Wednesday, April 4.  The greatest impact of these
changes will most likely be felt by the IDD first tier sites that are
receiving the entire NEXRAD feed.   Although we do not know precisely
how many additional products will appear during the time frame mentioned
below, our expectation is that no problems will arise.  Of course, we
will be monitoring the situation.

For a list of WSR-88D products available via NOAAPORT, see
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/oso/noaaport.html.

If you would like to receive these notifications directly, go to
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/mailinglist/mailing-list-form.html and
