[IDD #LNL-619813]: Is there a page on how thr CRAFT/NEXRAD2 feed works?

Hi Gilbert,

What I meant is how many pqact invocations do/did you have when you were
tryint to process all of the Level II data.  By way of example, here are
the ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf entries that we use to process ALL Level II data
on a dual Athlon 2400+ machine that is also processing ALL data available
by the IDD:

exec    "pqact -f CRAFT -p BZIP2/K[A-D] 
exec    "pqact -f CRAFT -p BZIP2/K[E-K] 
exec    "pqact -f CRAFT -p BZIP2/K[L-R] 
exec    "pqact -f CRAFT -p BZIP2/K[S-Z] 

re: lots of disk space needed to keep all 134 NEXRAD Level II data for a week
> Yes I will, and I figured that out. :-)

re: McIDAS ADDE does not (yet) serve the Level II data.
> True. But I figured it was coming, as you hint above.

re: no advice on submitting an Egrant proposal
> LOL! That's right, you can't provide advice, I forgot. Hmmm. OK. Will have

> Thanks again Tom! Take care.
