Daryl,

Thanks for the reply, the directory has been setup with the naming and 
directory conventions followed. I didn't actually use any of the case data, 
only a few archive files from our local TDWR site. I've had issues before with 
our local TDWR data, so I am completely willing to believe GEMPAK is not the 
issue. I was more wondering if the NCDC level 3 works natively at all which, 
judging by everyone's response, it does.

It should just-work(tm).  Did you rename the files to properly match the
directory structure and file naming that GEMPAK expects?

For example:

$ ls $RAD/NIDS/DMX/N0R/N0R_20150428_2028
/data/gempak/nexrad/NIDS/DMX/N0R/N0R_20150428_2028
