Re: Expanded AVN Availability

NWS has submitted a change request (dated 12 Feb) that could potentially free 
up bandwidth for additional NCEP (or other) products on the NWSTG channel.

The change request is for combining/compressing the GOESWest/GOESEast 
channels into one channel, and use the resulting free channel for hi res Eta.

The same change request also places an emphasis on compressing non-NEXRAD 
data on NWSTG to increase the efficiency of that channel . . . but technical 
information is lacking on time frame and methodology.

It remains to be seen what this means for AVN and other "want list" products 
for NOAAPort.
