Hi Robert,

NOGAPS/FNMOC is a point to point feed only.  You'll need to contact Dave
Dimitriou at FNMOC if you're interested in getting it.  You'll find his
address on our contact page:
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/projects/idd/sitelist.html.

Regarding volume, here are some stats from last October for a "typical"
day, approximately 24 hours:

number NOGAPS products = 7607
total NOGAPS bytes      =    683 Mb
avg NOGAPS product size =  89809 bytes
min NOGAPS bytes/hour   =      3 Mb
max NOGAPS bytes/hour   =    237 Mb

The data comes out in spurts, hence the difference in min and max hourly
volumes.  Note the both COAMPS and NOGAPS are under the NOGAPS/FNMOC
feed.  For more info see our web page: 
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/packages/ldm/feedtypes/fnmoc.html.

Btw, I don't what that response was that you got to this posting.  Maybe
someone gave a list server as an address in signing up for ldm-users. 
We'll look into that.
