Last year I was able to minimize data loss during an 8 hour power outage
by accessing Pete Pokrandt's archives of the raw IDD feeds for DDPLUS
and HDS (see below). Unfortunately, Pete no longer maintains this, so
I'm looking for other options. I need raw data for DDPLUS/HDS from 7Z
to 19Z 3 June 2007 and will need data for an upcoming outage on June
15th. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sorry, I just realized I never got back to you.
We archive the raw LDM feed for the DDPLUS and HDS feeds, I can
get you access to those files (1 per hour) and you can feed
them back into your ldm as a replay, with a command such as
pqing -l - -q /u2/ldm/data/ldm.pq -f hrs 2001011511.HRS
