Tony,

The 6 NEXRAD products that are currently available are:
N0R  N0S  N0V  NCR  NTP  NVL

The NWS list of products to be added is given at:
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/chg_show.pl?fn=NN1905C.TXT
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/chg_show.pl?fn=NN1892.TXT

The next set of products that will be added are:

19/R ..... BASE REFLECTIVITY (1.45O/1.50O ELEVATION)
19/R ..... BASE REFLECTIVITY (2.40O/2.50O ELEVATION)
19/R ..... BASE REFLECTIVITY (3.35O/3.50O ELEVATION)
20/R ..... BASE REFLECTIVITY (0.50O ELEVATION)
27/V ..... BASE RADIAL VELOCITY (1.45O/1.50O ELEVATION)
41/ET .... ECHO TOPS
48/VWP ... VELOCITY AZIMUTH DISPLAY WIND PROFILES
56/SRM ... STORM RELATIVE MEAN RADIAL VELOCITY (1.45O ELEVATION)
56/SRM ... STORM RELATIVE MEAN RADIAL VELOCITY (2.40O ELEVATION)
78/OHP ... SURFACE RAINFALL ACCUMULATION ... ONE HOUR RUNNING

The test of adding these products occurred in April. I don't know when
they will announce the general distribution of the products (probably when the 
next AWIPS build is installed at the NWS offices).

The OHP is the one hour running precipitation accumulation.
