20050519: [address@hidden: Re: CONDUIT data]


No, CONDUIT provides full grids for ETA Alaska on grid 216.

I think your user did have a confusion, since RUC20KM is available
on Grid #252 on CONDUIT. Note, Grid #252 is a CONUS region
and not an Alaska region.

The GRIB2 format data in the NGRID feed from NOAAPORT provides
ETA/NAM on grid #242 which is 11.25km.
