Here is a snippit of the output from a 'notifyme' for FNEXRAD data I just ran:

Also in the list are:

The rest of the products are GRIB messages that contain the same information
as the images.  Since you are looking for imagery, I will stay away from
a discussion of the products in GRIB format.

> I used a Unix machine to create and

The files you attached are not correctly formatted for use in a
pqact.conf action.  Here are the things that are wrong:

- the whitespace that MUST be tab stops are spaces

- the regular expressions you have specified in the UNIWISC actions
  will not match image products in the UNIWISC datastreams:

UNIWISC ^GOES-11_IMG
        FILE -close -overwrite data_test/GOES_11/IR/4KM/GOES_11_4km.gini
UNIWISC ^GOES-12_IMG
        FILE -close -overwrite data_test/GOES_12/IR/4KM/GOES_12_4km.gini

  Your regular expressions look for product headers that begins with
  GOES-11_IMG and GOES-12_IMG, respectively.  The PNG-compressed AREA format
  image products in the UNIWISC datafeed begin with 'pnga2area':

pnga2area Q3 UB 173 GOES-11_IMG 6.8um 8km 20070618 1930
pnga2area Q3 U9 123 GOES-11_IMG 0.65um 4km 20070618 1930
pnga2area Q3 U5 133 GOES-11_IMG 10.7um 4km 20070618 1930
pnga2area Q3 U7 1243 GOES-11_IMG 3.9um 4km 20070618 1930
pnga2area Q3 U8 1253 GOES-11_IMG 12.0um 4km 20070618 1930

pnga2area Q0 CB 1110 GOES-11_SND UNKBAND 1km 20070618 1800
pnga2area Q0 CE 1140 GOES-11_SND UNKBAND 1km 20070618 1800
pnga2area Q3 UE 1233 GOES-12_IMG 13.3um 4km 20070618 1945
pnga2area Q3 UW 213 GOES-12_IMG 6.5um 4km 20070618 1945
pnga2area Q3 UI 153 GOES-12_IMG 10.7um 4km 20070618 1945
pnga2area Q3 UD 1223 GOES-12_IMG 3.9um 4km 20070618 1945
pnga2area Q3 UV 143 GOES-12_IMG 0.65um 4km 20070618 1945

  A valid regular expression that would match GOES-11 products would
  look like:

UNIWISC<tab>^pnga2area .. .. .* (GOES-11)_... (.*) (.*km) (........) (....)
<tab>FILE<tab>-close<tab>-overwrite data_test/\1/\2/\3_\4_\5.pnga

- the regular expression you have for the FNEXRAD feed:

FNEXRAD ^radar_mosaic_national
        FILE -close -overwrite data_test/mosaic/national/FNEXRAD_1.grib

  looks like it would be OK to select the national composite in GRIB format
  _IF_ the whitespace was tabs where needed:

FNEXRAD<tab>^radar_mosaic_national
<tab>FILE<tab>-close<tab>-overwrite data/test/mosaic/national/FNEXRAD_1.grib

> The files that are being generated in my ~ldm directory
> doesn't seem to update new files for FNEXRAD, UNIWISC
> GOES-11, & UNIWISC GOES-12. Any insights why that's
> happening?

The action you have for the FNEXRAD radar_mosaic_national products explicitly
says to overwrite the existing product as each new one is received.  If
you pqact.conf file actually has tabs were I indicate above, you should
see one file in the ~ldm/data/test/mosaic/national directory.

Question: are you seeing any products get filed?

This is a portion of a header for the NoR product in GRIB format.
I was under the impression that you wanted images, not grids.

> Thanks for your time. I greatly appreciate it as always.

No worries.

I have attached a pqact.conf file with actions that you can try
to use in your installation (in replacement of the ones you currently
have).  Please try them out and see if this gets you going.

Cheers,

Tom
