[gembud] Using GEMPAK for Real-time exercise

Hello,


Does anyone have any suggestions on using GEMPAK/N-AWIPS to facilitate a 
real-time severe weather exercise?


So far I have created separate SIM users that have a gemenviron.profile 
pointing to a completely separate data and tables tree which can be managed by 
an exercise controller.? Because of how the N-tools work, I have noticed that 
timestamps need to be made current in order to display immediately in frame 
selection.


On another note, does NCDC archived level 3 data require decoding? The files I 
have attempted to load are not working natively with GEMPAK (Previous 
experience says level 2 should work fine).


Any input/lessons learned would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,


-Warren
