Gilbert,
    Thanks for your help. I'm supporting several field campaigns right now so 
I'll have to wait to upgrade to a new version. I may be able to install the new 
version on a vm that I can use for everything else once my field campaigns are 
over. I haven't run ldm on a vm so I don't know if that is problematic or not 
but it is a possibility.

Thanks again for your help!
    Greg

Hi Greg,

OK. For CIDD, the second step should not be necessary if you can already 
visualize the data just fine, minus the issue here.

I can tell you that problem was fixed in the LDM 6.13 series. I wanted to rule 
out to make sure that there was nothing else causing a complication first. Is 
there any chance you could do an upgrade to 6.13.6, and fail back over to the 
old version if things go haywire?

Also, If it installs fine, I believe your load average should be noticeably 
smaller as well.

Gilbert,
     We are still using LDM 6.11.2 - a ways behind I know. I'm not sure what 
you mean by coding software - how we are looking at the data? We are using an 
NCAR package called CIDD for visualizing the data. I think the problem may be 
I'm not saving these files in a two-step process as described here: 
https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/data/radar.html I'm only using the first pattern.

Thanks,
    Greg

Hi Greg,

I haven't noticed it. What version of LDM and the coding software are you 
using? Just curious.

We've recently discovered that we are missing roughly a third of the beams from 
the highest elevation scan in the level 2 data we are receiving. We've seen 
this with every NEXRAD we've randomly checked. This also seems to have been 
going on for quite some time - > months. We are trying to figure out the cause. 
Has anyone else noticed this in the level 2 data?

Thanks,
    Greg
