Re: New NIDS products question...

We have no plans at present to reduce the data stream going to our
downstream sites, which includes UIUC, which I think feeds NIU. However,
this new data will cost us an extra $80/month or so in increased
bandwidth usage for each university that connects to us. At some point
we may have to assess when the cost is too great for the benefit provided,
as more NEXRAD data products get added.
