RE: UCAR's IDD Upstream Data Feed Source



HI Guys,

The UNIDATA feed is not really a "type" but a "suite" of feeds. that
includes HDS, DDS,PPS,MCIDAS, & IDS. If all you are requesting is HDS we
may need to find another feed for Mike if he wants other data than HDS.
The UNIDATA feed should still function under 5.0.8.


Or you could you change your request from typhoon to the UNIDATA feed,
then you would have more data at your fingertips and could feed Mike the
same feed. If this is not acceptable due to hardware constraints or other
issues, we can find a work around. For all, it would be best if you
upgraded to 5.1.3 version of the LDM.

-Jeff
