All,

I took a guess and just repeated the entire GOES13 section right after, but changed the satellite ID to 180 and it now works with both NOAAPORT GINI and McIDAS GOES13. You'll have to verify that it works with FTP'd data too.

So basically I have duplicate GOES 13 sections, one set with ID 80 and one set with ID 180.

I love a good mystery :)

Pete

180 instead of 80.

Oh boy... we seem to have a pickle here... I was actually using 180 for GOES-13 because I looked it up at Wisconsin somewhere and it works for McIDAS GOES-13 imagery and GINI data ftp'd from the NWS, but not for IDD Noaaport GINI. However, I just tried changing it to 80 for GOES-13, and now it works for the IDD Noaaport GINI, but no longer works for McIDAS GOES-13 and data ftp'd from the NWS... any suggestions?
