We have sites in Virginia, as well as at NSF that are both closer
geographically and electronically...is there a specific reason you prefer

You can feed from whomever is wiiling to feed you, we just try to make it

  What are the alternative providers?

Please see:

DDPLUS is a super-set if PPS DDS and IDS, all come in under one feed.

You should send that information to me and we will place it in the
sitelist and contact your upstream feed to place the allow.
