Here is what we are using to ingest GEM data from CMC on a machine
here at the UPC:

# GEM data: (aka dns2.cmc.ec.gc.ca)
request CMC "CMC_GEM_reg_.*" ftp.cmc.ec.gc.ca

You may want to change this for your own use.

>All Dov has provided me is his machine name? What is the product stream name?

All LDM feed types are listed in:


From this page, you can see that equivalent feed types for GEM data
are:  GEM, CMC, FT20.

>and then do I just specify ".*"?

What you want to ingest from any IDD stream is ultimately up to you.
I would start using the ".*" pattern and then look through what you
get and decide if you want to request less.

The 1 km composite of base reflectivities at tilt 1 are included in
the FNEXRAD feed.  They are sent with headers that look like:

>Can you tell me exactly what I need to specify
>to start bringing this in?

A request line that looks like the following will work:

request FNEXRAD "^rad/NEXRCOMP/1km" <the upstream host you want to feed from>

You need to:

o replace the last bit above with the machine you are requesting the feed from

o add an action to your LDM's pqact.conf file to do something with the
  products when they are received.

>thanks for everything,

You are welcome.
