Whatever it may be worth to the community, I have collected up ~10 minutes worth (1.1GB yowzers) of the NOTHER GOES-R feed in this zip file.

I chomped off the WMO header (36 bytes worth) within each product so that each file should be a valid netcdf4 file.


PS, my testing pqact entry:

NOTHER  (TI....) (....) (......) (...)
PIPE -close python /home/ldm/ /home/ldm/goesr/\1_\2_\3_\

and my script

import sys

fn = sys.argv[1]
data =
o = open(fn, 'wb')

Hi Patrick,

I have, though I haven't tried to take any action on it yet.  First off,
everything I see is coming in from NOTHER, not NIMAGE.  But the following
pattern works for me:  -p "TI[RS].[01][0-9] KNES"

That pattern should catch anything for GOES-16.  One interesting note, I
see TIRC.. products, looks like a fresh set every 5 minutes so I'm guessing
that could be CONUS since they haven't committed to East or West yet.  But
like I said, haven't investigated too deeply yet.
