Hi,I couldn't remember if I had forwarded this to you or not, so I'm doing it again!
There are now 96 radars delivering data to CRAFT. Linda ---------- Forwarded Message ----------
Date: Monday, December 15, 2003 3:51 PM -0600 From: Tim D Crum <Tim.D.Crum@xxxxxxxx> SUBJECT: Update On National Weather Service (NWS) Project To Collect And Distribute WSR-88D Level II Data In Real Time TO: Participants Of June 18, 2003 Level II Public Meeting NWS Regional Headquarters WSR-88D Focal Points DOD and FAA WSR-88D Focal Points FROM: Tim Crum (Tim.D.Crum@xxxxxxxx) Date: 15 December 2003 1. This is an update to the NWS WSR-88D Level II data collection and distribution network project I sent on 25 November. 2. Status of Phase 1 of implementing the Initial Operating Capability (IOC). The hardware and Internet2 circuits required to implement the IOC are now in place for the NWS Central Region (CR) and Western Region (WR). All CR WSR-88D sites have joined the ?CRAFT? network and WR sites are joining the network every day. The server hardware will be installed at Eastern Region by the end of the month. The connectivity to the Southern Region (SR) will not be established until early January. Thus, no additional SR sites will be added to the network until January. The list of 96 sites sending data electronically to the CRAFT server, National Climatic Data Center, and available for distribution is at: http://www.osf.noaa.gov/NWS_Level_2/Site_Listing.asp. I will update the site at least weekly until the last of the 124 sites are on the network. 3. The research project that was funding for the connections for the Greenville-Spartanburg (GSP) and Atlanta (FFC) data feeds has run out of funds to continue the connections. Thus, data from these two sites will not be available until the SR server connectivity is established in January as discussed above. 4. Please feel free to send me additional questions and comments on this project.
