ATTN ALL USERS OF THE AWIPS/NOAAPORT DATASTREAM

TOMORROW APRIL 30 SHORTLY AFTER 1130 UTC NWS WILL RESUME THE
ADJUSTMENTS INDICATED BELOW. THIS HAD BEEN SUSPENDED PENDING
RESOLUTION OF A PROBLEM WITH THE CCB BEING SENT WITH THE DATA.
A CORRECTION TO THAT PROBLEM WAS SUCCESSFULLY TESTED TODAY ON A
VERY LIMITED SET OF PRODUCTS. WE WILL BE EXPANDING THAT PRODUCT
SET TOMORROW. AT THIS TIME ONLY GRIB PRODUCTS ARE AFFECTED.
PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU EXPERIENCE ANY PROBLEMS.

NWS IS MAKING ADJUSTMENTS TO COMMUNICATIONS PATHS BETWEEN THE
NWSTG AND THE AWIPS/NOAAPORT NETWORK CONTROL FACILITY /NCF/.
ULTIMATELY THIS COULD REDUCE SOME DATA DELAYS AT PEAK TRAFFIC
PERIODS. WHILE THESE ADJUSTMENTS ARE BEING MADE THE DELIVERY
TIME OF SOME PRODUCTS MAY VARY SLIGHTLY. THE PRODUCTS AFFECTED
ARE THE AVN  MRF  NGM  ETA AND OTHER GRIB ENCODED PRODUCTS.

THESE ADJUSTMENTS SHOULD BE COMPLETE BY THE MIDDLE OF MAY.  WE
ARE CLOSELY MONITORING THE CHANGES TO AVOID ANY NEGATIVE IMPACT.

NOTE  THIS MESSAGE WILL BE REPEATED DURING THIS ADJUSTMENT PERIOD.
